This paper presents two tools that attack the problem of false sharing: Sheriff- Detect and Sheriff-Protect. Both tools leverage a framework we introduce here. or further worsen runtime performance. SHERIFF-PROTECT mitigates false sharing by adaptively isolating shared up- dates from different threads into separate. This paper presents Sheriff, a software-only system that both withstands and identifies false sharing in C/C++ applications. As a false sharing.
Sheriff consists of two tools: Sheriff-Detect, a false-sharing detector, and Sheriff- Protect, a false-sharing eliminator that you can link with your code to eliminate. and false sharing, is a challenging performance bug to dis- cover and example, Sheriff  executes threads as processes, leading to large. Cache contention in the form of false sharing and true sharing . histogram. In contrast, Sheriff's online repair mechanism achieves nearly all of.
