When deadlocks become livelocks (via: Do deadlocks cause high CPU utilization? – Stack Overflow)

The Wiert Corner – Depending on how you organize locks (for instance via waiting on semaphores or mutexes or spinlocks), deadlocks can become livelocks: Inability to make forward progress because of conflicting spinlocks is usually referred to as ‘livelock’. Thanks to Martin James for reminding me of that and Danny Thorpe for describing different ways of locking. Be sure to read on deadlock prevention as well. –jeroen via: c++ – Do deadlocks cause high CPU utilization? – Stack Overflow.Filed under: .NET, C++, Delphi, Development, Software Development
