This practical book includes a tutorial of the entire set of Windows and .NET APIs required to write concurrent programs. Because so much of the threading and synchronization features of the platform are Windows-general, the author, Joe Duffy, focuses first on the general behavior and then on the API details of native and managed code. Interspersed among the tutorial are many difficult-to-discover, useful insights, and internal details about how things work.

Multiprocessor machines, or Multicores, as they are known in the industry, are quickly taking over every aspect of computing. This volume provides a presentation of the guiding principles and algorithmic techniques necessary for effective multiprocessor programming.
With the new C++ Standard and Technical Report 2 (TR2), multi-threading is coming to C++ in a big way. TR2 will provide higher-level synchronization facilities that allow for a much greater level of abstraction, and make programming multi-threaded applications simpler and safer. Concurrent programming is required if programmers are to take advantage of the multi-core microprocessors increasingly available from Intel and others. The new standard for C++ has extensions to the language that make concurrent programming more accessible to regular developers. As a guide and reference to the new concurrency features in the upcoming C++ Standard and TR2, this book is invaluable for existing programmers familiar with writing multi-threaded code in C++ using platform-specific APIs, or in other languages, as well as C++ programmers who have never written multithreaded code before.
Andrew S. Tanenbaum
The widely anticipated revision of this worldwide best-seller incorporates the latest developments in operating systems technologies. The Third Edition includes up-to-date materials on relevant operating systems such as Linux, Windows, and embedded real-time and multimedia systems. Includes new and updated coverage of multimedia operating systems, multiprocessors, virtual machines, and antivirus software. Covers internal workings of Windows Vista (Ch. 11); unique even for current publications. Provides information on current research based Tanenbaum's experiences as an operating systems researcher. A useful reference for programmers.
David R. Butenhof
Threads are the key to faster, more efficient, and easier-to-maintain operating systems. Butenhof, a recognized authority on POSIX threads, tells how to use Pthreads in the real world, making efficient and portable applications. A unique feature of the book is the many examples which consist of simple instructive programs. The code is expansive and well-annotated. Key chapters are devoted to advanced threaded programming, real code (including read-write locks), and hints to avoid bad code and performance problems. Programming in POSIX Threads provides a solid general understanding of threaded programming models, concurrency, synchronization, and scheduling--need to know information for learning to think in terms of threaded concepts.

A hands-on resource for SQL Server 2008 troubleshooting methods and tools SQL Server administrators need to ensure that SQL Server remains running 24/7. Authored by leading SQL Server experts and MVPs, this book provides in-depth coverage of best practices based on a deep understanding of the internals of both SQL Server and the Windows operating system. You'll get a thorough look at the SQL Server database architecture and internals as well as Windows OS internals so that you can approach troubleshooting with a solid grasp of the total processing environment. Armed with this comprehensive understanding, readers will then learn how to use a suite of tools for troubleshooting performance problems whether they originate on the database server or operating system side. Topics Covered: SQL Server Architecture Understanding Memory SQL Server Waits and Extended Events Working with Storage CPU and Query Processing Locking and Latches Knowing Tempdb Defining Your Approach To Troubleshooting Viewing Server Performance with PerfMon and the PAL Tool Tracing SQL Server with SQL Trace and Profiler Consolidating Data Collection with SQLDiag and the PerfStats Script Introducing RML Utilities for Stress Testing and Trace File Analysis Bringing It All Together with SQL Nexus Using Management Studio Reports and the Performance Dashboard Using SQL Server Management Data Warehouse Shortcuts to Efficient Data Collection and Quick Analysis Note: CD-ROM/DVD and other supplementary materials are not included as part of eBook file.
Any UNIX programmer using the latest workstations or super minicomputers from vendors such as Sun, Silicon Graphics (SGI), ATandT, Amdahl, IBM, Apple, Compaq, Mentor Graphics, and Thinking Machines needs this book to optimize his/her job performance. This book teaches how these architectures operate using clear, comprehensible examples to explain the concepts, and provides a good reference for people already familiar with the basic concepts.
Coding and testing are often considered separate areas of expertise. In this comprehensive guide, author and Java expert Scott Oaks takes the approach that anyone who works with Java should be equally adept at understanding how code behaves in the JVM, as well as the tunings likely to help its performance. You’ll gain in-depth knowledge of Java application performance, using the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) and the Java platform, including the language and API. Developers and performance engineers alike will learn a variety of features, tools, and processes for improving the way Java 7 and 8 applications perform. Apply four principles for obtaining the best results from performance testingUse JDK tools to collect data on how a Java application is performingUnderstand the advantages and disadvantages of using a JIT compilerTune JVM garbage collectors to affect programs as little as possibleUse techniques to manage heap memory and JVM native memoryMaximize Java threading and synchronization performance featuresTackle performance issues in Java EE and Java SE APIsImprove Java-driven database application performance
