Light Reading: Optimizing Reader/Writer Locking for Read-Dominant Real-Time Workloads

Authors: Catherine E. Nemitz, Shai Caspin, James H. Anderson, and Bryan C. Ward

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 196, 33rd Euromicro Conference on Real-Time Systems (ECRTS 2021)


Abstract
This paper is directed at reader/writer locking for read-dominant real-time workloads. It is shown that state-of-the-art real-time reader/writer locking protocols are subject to performance limitations when reads dominate, and that existing schedulability analysis fails to leverage the sparsity of writes in this case. A new reader/writer locking-protocol implementation and new inflation-free schedulability analysis are proposed to address these problems. Overhead evaluations of the new implementation show a decrease in overheads of up to 70% over previous implementations, leading to throughput for read operations increasing by up to 450%. Schedulability experiments are presented that show that the analysis results in schedulability improvements of up to 156.8% compared to the existing state-of-the-art approach.
