ABSTRACT
In Transactional Memory (TM), a conflict occurs when a memory block is accessed concurrently by two or more transactions and at least one of them is a write access. The management of conflicts significantly impacts TM performance. There are two alternative approaches for managing conflicts: Reactive Contention Management (RCM) [1] and Proactive Contention Management (PCM) [2]. Previous contention management schemes treat all transactions with no weights, and make a decision based on the information provided by the running transaction instance.
