Non-blocking system calls allow the competing thread to return on an unsuccessful attempt to the lock, and allow useful work to be done, thereby avoiding wasteful utilization of execution resources at the same time.
Currently, there are a number of synchronization mechanisms available, and it is left to the application developer to choose an appropriate one to minimize overall synchronization overhead.
Application programmers sometimes write hand-coded synchronization routines rather than using constructs provided by a threading API in order to reduce synchronization overhead or provide different functionality than existing constructs offer.
This topic introduces the concept of critical section size, defined as the length of time a thread spends inside a critical section, and its effect on performance.
Wearables and home automation devices dominate the IoT market today, but the overall ecosystem for the IoT will evolve.
