多线程

这个实验性接口支持Julia的多线程功能。类型和函数 在本节的相关描述很有可能会在未来进行修改。

Base.Threads.threadidFunction.
Threads.threadid()

Get the ID number of the current thread of execution. The master thread has ID 1.

source
Base.Threads.nthreadsFunction.
Threads.nthreads()

Get the number of threads available to the Julia process. This is the inclusive upper bound on threadid().

source
Threads.@threads

A macro to parallelize a for-loop to run with multiple threads. This spawns nthreads() number of threads, splits the iteration space amongst them, and iterates in parallel. A barrier is placed at the end of the loop which waits for all the threads to finish execution, and the loop returns.

source
Threads.Atomic{T}

Holds a reference to an object of type T, ensuring that it is only accessed atomically, i.e. in a thread-safe manner.

Only certain "simple" types can be used atomically, namely the primitive boolean, integer, and float-point types. These are Bool, Int8...Int128, UInt8...UInt128, and Float16...Float64.

New atomic objects can be created from a non-atomic values; if none is specified, the atomic object is initialized with zero.

Atomic objects can be accessed using the [] notation:

Examples

julia> x = Threads.Atomic{Int}(3)
Base.Threads.Atomic{Int64}(3)

julia> x[] = 1
1

julia> x[]
1

Atomic operations use an atomic_ prefix, such as atomic_add!, atomic_xchg!, etc.

source
Threads.atomic_cas!(x::Atomic{T}, cmp::T, newval::T) where T

Atomically compare-and-set x

Atomically compares the value in x with cmp. If equal, write newval to x. Otherwise, leaves x unmodified. Returns the old value in x. By comparing the returned value to cmp (via ===) one knows whether x was modified and now holds the new value newval.

For further details, see LLVM's cmpxchg instruction.

This function can be used to implement transactional semantics. Before the transaction, one records the value in x. After the transaction, the new value is stored only if x has not been modified in the mean time.

Examples

julia> x = Threads.Atomic{Int}(3)
Base.Threads.Atomic{Int64}(3)

julia> Threads.atomic_cas!(x, 4, 2);

julia> x
Base.Threads.Atomic{Int64}(3)

julia> Threads.atomic_cas!(x, 3, 2);

julia> x
Base.Threads.Atomic{Int64}(2)
source
Threads.atomic_xchg!(x::Atomic{T}, newval::T) where T

Atomically exchange the value in x

Atomically exchanges the value in x with newval. Returns the old value.

For further details, see LLVM's atomicrmw xchg instruction.

source

1
source
Threads.atomic_and!(x::Atomic{T}, val::T) where T

source
Threads.atomic_nand!(x::Atomic{T}, val::T) where T

For further details, see LLVM's atomicrmw nand instruction.

Examples

julia> x = Threads.Atomic{Int}(3)
Base.Threads.Atomic{Int64}(3)

julia> Threads.atomic_nand!(x, 2)
3

julia> x[]
-3
source
Threads.atomic_or!(x::Atomic{T}, val::T) where T

Atomically bitwise-or x with val

Performs x[] |= val atomically. Returns the old value.

For further details, see LLVM's atomicrmw or instruction.

Examples

julia> x = Threads.Atomic{Int}(5)
Base.Threads.Atomic{Int64}(5)

julia> Threads.atomic_or!(x, 7)
5

julia> x[]
7
source
Threads.atomic_xor!(x::Atomic{T}, val::T) where T

Atomically bitwise-xor (exclusive-or) x with val

julia> Threads.atomic_min!(x, 5)
7

julia> x[]
5
source
Threads.atomic_fence()

Insert a sequential-consistency memory fence

Inserts a memory fence with sequentially-consistent ordering semantics. There are algorithms where this is needed, i.e. where an acquire/release ordering is insufficient.

This is likely a very expensive operation. Given that all other atomic operations in Julia already have acquire/release semantics, explicit fences should not be necessary in most cases.

For further details, see LLVM's fence instruction.

使用线程池的ccal方法(实验性)

Base.@threadcallMacro.
@threadcall((cfunc, clib), rettype, (argtypes...), argvals...)

The @threadcall macro is called in the same way as ccall but does the work in a different thread. This is useful when you want to call a blocking C function without causing the main julia thread to become blocked. Concurrency is limited by size of the libuv thread pool, which defaults to 4 threads but can be increased by setting the UV_THREADPOOL_SIZE environment variable and restarting the julia process.

Note that the called function should never call back into Julia.

同步原始类型

AbstractLock

Abstract supertype describing types that implement the thread-safe synchronization primitives: lock, trylock, unlock, and islocked.

source
Base.lockFunction.
lock(lock)

Acquire the lock when it becomes available. If the lock is already locked by a different task/thread, wait for it to become available.

Each lock must be matched by an unlock.

source
Base.unlockFunction.
unlock(lock)

Releases ownership of the lock.

If this is a recursive lock which has been acquired before, decrement an internal counter and return immediately.

source
Base.trylockFunction.
trylock(lock) -> Success (Boolean)

Acquire the lock if it is available, and return true if successful. If the lock is already locked by a different task/thread, return false.

Each successful trylock must be matched by an unlock.

source
Base.islockedFunction.
islocked(lock) -> Status (Boolean)

Check whether the lock is held by any task/thread. This should not be used for synchronization (see instead trylock).

source
ReentrantLock()

Creates a reentrant lock for synchronizing Tasks. The same task can acquire the lock as many times as required. Each lock must be matched with an unlock.

This lock is NOT threadsafe. See Threads.Mutex for a threadsafe lock.

source
Mutex()

These are standard system mutexes for locking critical sections of logic.

On Windows, this is a critical section object, on pthreads, this is a pthread_mutex_t.

See also SpinLock for a lighter-weight lock.

source
SpinLock()

Create a non-reentrant lock. Recursive use will result in a deadlock. Each lock must be matched with an unlock.

Test-and-test-and-set spin locks are quickest up to about 30ish contending threads. If you have more contention than that, perhaps a lock is the wrong way to synchronize.

See also RecursiveSpinLock for a version that permits recursion.

See also Mutex for a more efficient version on one core or if the lock may be held for a considerable length of time.

source
RecursiveSpinLock()

Creates a reentrant lock. The same thread can acquire the lock as many times as required. Each lock must be matched with an unlock.

See also SpinLock for a slightly faster version.

See also Mutex for a more efficient version on one core or if the lock may be held for a considerable length of time.

source
Base.SemaphoreType.
Semaphore(sem_size)

Create a counting semaphore that allows at most sem_size acquires to be in use at any time. Each acquire must be matched with a release.

This construct is NOT threadsafe.

source
Base.acquireFunction.
acquire(s::Semaphore)

Wait for one of the sem_size permits to be available, blocking until one can be acquired.

source
Base.releaseFunction.
release(s::Semaphore)

Return one permit to the pool, possibly allowing another task to acquire it and resume execution.
