Introduction to Persistent Memory Allocator and Transactions


Persistent memory programming comes with a set of benefits and challenges. The Persistent Memory Development Kit (PMDK) is a collection of open source libraries developed by Intel which make it easy for developers to enable persistent memory in their applications. libpmemobj is a general purpose library in PMDK that supports persistent memory allocator and transactional operations. In this webinar we will describe how the persistent memory allocator works, the need for transactions and how transactions are implemented in libpmemobj. Prepare your code to take advantage of Intel® persistent memory.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
