Project Title: Transaction Memory Apache
Transactional Memory systems attempt to give multiprocessor programmers the ease of use of course-grained locks with the performance scalability of fine-grained locks. With the development of these systems a need for performance evaluation methods has emerged. This project offers a benchmark for transactional memory systems based on the popular Apache webserver. Results of running it with Intel's transactional memory manager have shown comparable performance to locking.
