Early Adoption Plan of Distributed Software Development Course (ASU)

In service-oriented distributed systems, server applications may be invoked by multiple clients. Such applications can utilize multicore architectures and threading techniques to improve service response time and to reduce resource contention. In Fall 2011, Intel’s Thread Building Blocks (TBB) technique is discussed in the class for server application design. TBB provides straightforward ways of introducing performance threading, by turning synchronous calls into asynchronous calls and converting large methods (threads) into smaller ones.

Multithreading the Rendering Pipeline for 3D Model Animation


This article proposes a simple and efficient multithreading solution to accelerate rendering for a number of animated 3D models. The solution enhances the performance of skeletal animation by using a thread pool, double buffering, and intermittent updates. This set of techniques performs CPU-based skeletal animation at performance levels that are competitive with GPU-based animation implementations, and it serves as a flexible alternative on multi-core systems.

  • TBB initialization, termination, and resource management details, juicy and gory.

    Well, maybe more essential than juicy, and rather treacherous than gory. As I noted in my previous blog introducing a major task scheduler extension – support for task and task group priorities, TBB has been steadily evolving ever since its inception.
