Reducing Lock Overhead

Lock overhead is the time spent in creating, destroying, acquiring, and releasing locks. Lock overhead does not include the time spent waiting for a lock held by another task - that is called lock contention. You can think of lock overhead as the cost of the lock operations themselves assuming the lock is always available.
