Master multithreading and concurrent processing with C++ About This Book • Delve into the fundamentals of multithreading and concurrency and find out how to implement them • Explore atomic operations to optimize code performance • Apply concurrency to both distributed computing and GPGPU processing Who This Book Is For This book is for intermediate C++ developers who wish to extend their knowledge of multithreading and concurrent processing. You should have basic experience with multithreading and be comfortable using C++ development toolchains on the command line. What You Will Learn • Deep dive into the details of the how various operating systems currently implement multithreading • Choose the best multithreading APIs when designing a new application • Explore the use of mutexes, spin-locks, and other synchronization concepts and see how to safely pass data between threads • Understand the level of API support provided by various C++ toolchains • Resolve common issues in multithreaded code and recognize common pitfalls using tools such as Memcheck, CacheGrind, DRD, Helgrind, and more • Discover the nature of atomic operations and understand how they can be useful in optimizing code • Implement a multithreaded application in a distributed computing environment • Design a C++-based GPGPU application that employs multithreading In Detail Multithreaded applications execute multiple threads in a single processor environment, allowing developers achieve concurrency. This book will teach you the finer points of multithreading and concurrency concepts and how to apply them efficiently in C++. Divided into three modules, we start with a brief introduction to the fundamentals of multithreading and concurrency concepts. We then take an in-depth look at how these concepts work at the hardware-level as well as how both operating systems and frameworks use these low-level functions. In the next module, you will learn about the native multithreading and concurrency support available in C++ since the 2011 revision, synchronization and communication between threads, debugging concurrent C++ applications, and the best programming practices in C++. In the final module, you will learn about atomic operations before moving on to apply concurrency to distributed and GPGPU-based processing. The comprehensive coverage of essential multithreading concepts means you will be able to efficiently apply multithreading concepts while coding in C++. Style and approach This book is filled with examples that will help you become a master at writing robust concurrent and parallel applications in C++.
