In Pthread there are two functions create and join threads. I know that pthreads are the standard threading technique on Unix-based system as up until C++ 11 and C 11 both C and C++ had no support for threading. Child process shall have it’s own copy of message queue descriptors of the parents. So a good strategy is to create threads once and use them as often as possible. Which one is better, threading or forking ? With languages like C and C++, developers frequently have chosen Pthreads to incorporate parallelism in applications. Implementations that adhere to this standard are referred to as POSIX threads, or Pthreads. For example, I want to sum the number from 1 to 1'000'000 (C++ 14 trick) on one std::thread and one pthread which thread would take longer to run. While most effective on a multiprocessor system where the process flow can be scheduled to run on another processor thus gaining speed through parallel or distributed processing, gains are also found on uniprocessor systems which exploit latency in I/O and other system functions which may halt process execution. To allow other threads to continue execution, the main thread should terminate by calling pthread_exit () rather than exit (3). Threads B and C compete with each other to grab an integer from the queue. Then the CPU starts executing that code just like any other -- neither pthreads nor std::thread are actually involved in the processing of individual instructions, so there is no way for one to be 100x slower than the other. First parameter of pthread_join() is the ID of target thread. ._3Im6OD67aKo33nql4FpSp_{border:1px solid var(--newCommunityTheme-widgetColors-sidebarWidgetBorderColor);border-radius:5px 5px 4px 4px;overflow:visible;word-wrap:break-word;background-color:var(--newCommunityTheme-body);padding:12px}.lnK0-OzG7nLFydTWuXGcY{font-size:10px;font-weight:700;letter-spacing:.5px;line-height:12px;text-transform:uppercase;padding-bottom:4px;color:var(--newCommunityTheme-navIcon)} pthread won by 4-5x. Unless allocating stack space (done using mmap()) for the new thread is slow, a modern x86 machine should be able to create 100k threads per second, or at least close to it. If you fork, you have two independent processes which need to talk to each other in some way. The simplest example of forking is when you run a command on shell in unix/linux. 2. The code executed on a thread does not care how it was launched. ._3bX7W3J0lU78fp7cayvNxx{max-width:208px;text-align:center} When a fork system call is issued, a copy of all the pages corresponding to the parent process is created, loaded into a separate memory location by the OS for the child process, but in certain cases, this is not needed. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia POSIX Threads, usually referred to as pthreads, is an execution model that exists independently from a language, as well as a parallel execution model. Whether and when the target thread reacts to the cancellationrequest depends on two attributes that are under the control of that thread: its cancelability state and type. This function send a cancellation request to the thread. ._3-SW6hQX6gXK9G4FM74obr{display:inline-block;vertical-align:text-bottom;width:16px;height:16px;font-size:16px;line-height:16px} For UNIX systems, a standardized C language threads programming interface has been specified by the IEEE POSIX 1003.1c standard. /u/ben_craig explained quite well what's the difference. Which should i use in my application ? Now the parent can free the data. I know pthread could by more buggy then std::thread, but I would suspect pthread might be faster or just as fast as long as you avoid casting and type checking. I've also been benchmarking a lot, reading glibc and kernel source code etc. The child process will be having it’s own unique process ID. The performance difference of starting threads (if it exists) should not matter much since starting threads is a heavy operation anyway. The first argument is a pointer to thread_id which is set by this function. Discussions, articles and news about the C++ programming language or programming in C++. Syntax : – int pthread_cancel(pthread_t thread); First Program : – Cancel self thread If one process crashes or has a buffer overrun, it does not affect any other process at all. ): Monday, January 11th, 2010 | By Napster |, Watch your home/Video surveillance with Linux, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fork_(operating_system), http://tldp.org/FAQ/Threads-FAQ/Comparison.html, http://www.yolinux.com/TUTORIALS/LinuxTutorialPosixThreads.html. There is the issue with the shared address space, which means that a faulty pointer in a thread can corrupt memory of the parent process or another thread within the same address space. A thread is created basically by asking the OS to do it in both cases, because the OS has the scheduler, and the scheduler's job is to assign threads to cores. 1. The threads B and C compute the sum of integers that they have grabbed from the queue. Threads require less overhead than “forking” or spawning a new process because the system does not initialize a new system virtual memory space and environment for the process. (void **), it will point to the return value of thread function i.e. Or do you mean the whole APIs including mutexes and the like? Forking is much safer and more secure because each forked process runs in its own virtual address space. Any semaphores that are open in the parent process shall also be open in the child process. However, not everythi… Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts. What I mean is time is takes for thread initialization running, processes running on threads and thread cleanup, with emphasis on processes running on threads. When i have been surfing around, i see a lots of threads/questions regarding forking and threading, lots of queries which one should be used in the applications. The “thread safe” version is the re-entrant version strtok_r. The problem is, this usage is incorrect. ._1zyZUfB30L-DDI98CCLJlQ{border:1px solid transparent;display:block;padding:0 16px;width:100%;border:1px solid var(--newCommunityTheme-body);border-radius:4px;box-sizing:border-box}._1zyZUfB30L-DDI98CCLJlQ:hover{background-color:var(--newCommunityTheme-primaryButtonTintedEighty)}._1zyZUfB30L-DDI98CCLJlQ._2FebEA49ReODemDlwzYHSR,._1zyZUfB30L-DDI98CCLJlQ:active,._1zyZUfB30L-DDI98CCLJlQ:hover{color:var(--newCommunityTheme-bodyText);fill:var(--newCommunityTheme-bodyText)}._1zyZUfB30L-DDI98CCLJlQ._2FebEA49ReODemDlwzYHSR,._1zyZUfB30L-DDI98CCLJlQ:active{background-color:var(--newCommunityTheme-primaryButtonShadedEighty)}._1zyZUfB30L-DDI98CCLJlQ:disabled,._1zyZUfB30L-DDI98CCLJlQ[data-disabled],._1zyZUfB30L-DDI98CCLJlQ[disabled]{background-color:var(--newCommunityTheme-primaryButtonTintedFifty);color:rgba(var(--newCommunityTheme-bodyText),.5);fill:rgba(var(--newCommunityTheme-bodyText),.5);cursor:not-allowed}._1zyZUfB30L-DDI98CCLJlQ:active,._1zyZUfB30L-DDI98CCLJlQ:disabled,._1zyZUfB30L-DDI98CCLJlQ:hover,._1zyZUfB30L-DDI98CCLJlQ[data-disabled],._1zyZUfB30L-DDI98CCLJlQ[disabled]{border:1px solid var(--newCommunityTheme-body)}._1O2i-ToERP3a0i4GSL0QwU,._1uBzAtenMgErKev3G7oXru{display:block;fill:var(--newCommunityTheme-body);height:22px;width:22px}._1O2i-ToERP3a0i4GSL0QwU._2ilDLNSvkCHD3Cs9duy9Q_,._1uBzAtenMgErKev3G7oXru._2ilDLNSvkCHD3Cs9duy9Q_{height:14px;width:14px}._2kBlhw4LJXNnk73IJcwWsT,._1kRJoT0CagEmHsFjl2VT4R{height:24px;padding:0;width:24px}._2kBlhw4LJXNnk73IJcwWsT._2ilDLNSvkCHD3Cs9duy9Q_,._1kRJoT0CagEmHsFjl2VT4R._2ilDLNSvkCHD3Cs9duy9Q_{height:14px;width:14px}._3VgTjAJVNNV7jzlnwY-OFY{font-size:14px;line-height:32px;padding:0 16px}._3VgTjAJVNNV7jzlnwY-OFY,._3VgTjAJVNNV7jzlnwY-OFY._2ilDLNSvkCHD3Cs9duy9Q_{font-weight:700;letter-spacing:.5px;text-transform:uppercase}._3VgTjAJVNNV7jzlnwY-OFY._2ilDLNSvkCHD3Cs9duy9Q_{font-size:12px;line-height:24px;padding:4px 9px 2px;width:100%}._2QmHYFeMADTpuXJtd36LQs{font-size:14px;line-height:32px;padding:0 16px}._2QmHYFeMADTpuXJtd36LQs,._2QmHYFeMADTpuXJtd36LQs._2ilDLNSvkCHD3Cs9duy9Q_{font-weight:700;letter-spacing:.5px;text-transform:uppercase}._2QmHYFeMADTpuXJtd36LQs._2ilDLNSvkCHD3Cs9duy9Q_{font-size:12px;line-height:24px;padding:4px 9px 2px;width:100%}._2QmHYFeMADTpuXJtd36LQs:hover ._31L3r0EWsU0weoMZvEJcUA{display:none}._2QmHYFeMADTpuXJtd36LQs ._31L3r0EWsU0weoMZvEJcUA,._2QmHYFeMADTpuXJtd36LQs:hover ._11Zy7Yp4S1ZArNqhUQ0jZW{display:block}._2QmHYFeMADTpuXJtd36LQs ._11Zy7Yp4S1ZArNqhUQ0jZW{display:none}._2CLbCoThTVSANDpeJGlI6a{width:100%}._2CLbCoThTVSANDpeJGlI6a:hover ._31L3r0EWsU0weoMZvEJcUA{display:none}._2CLbCoThTVSANDpeJGlI6a ._31L3r0EWsU0weoMZvEJcUA,._2CLbCoThTVSANDpeJGlI6a:hover ._11Zy7Yp4S1ZArNqhUQ0jZW{display:block}._2CLbCoThTVSANDpeJGlI6a ._11Zy7Yp4S1ZArNqhUQ0jZW{display:none} Threads more powerful than events, but power is not something which is always needed.

I won’t dwell on all the options of the API, but will briskly give you the big picture. Could one thread handle the signals, another handle GUI stuff, etc.? For thread – only one process/thread table and one scheduler is needed. Dispatching? Pthread is low level implementation and OpenMp is higher level implementation. Are you prepared to worry about locking (mutually excluding data regions from other threads), deadlocks (a condition where two COEs have locked data that other is trying to get) and race conditions (a nasty, intractable problem where data is not locked properly and gets corrupted through threaded reads & writes)? ._1PeZajQI0Wm8P3B45yshR{fill:var(--newCommunityTheme-actionIcon)}._1PeZajQI0Wm8P3B45yshR._3axV0unm-cpsxoKWYwKh2x{fill:#ea0027} So do not use POSIX if you don't have a particular reason, if the alternative is std::thread. A thread does not maintain a list of created threads, nor does it know the thread that created it. .LalRrQILNjt65y-p-QlWH{fill:var(--newRedditTheme-actionIcon);height:18px;width:18px}.LalRrQILNjt65y-p-QlWH rect{stroke:var(--newRedditTheme-metaText)}._3J2-xIxxxP9ISzeLWCOUVc{height:18px}.FyLpt0kIWG1bTDWZ8HIL1{margin-top:4px}._2ntJEAiwKXBGvxrJiqxx_2,._1SqBC7PQ5dMOdF0MhPIkA8{height:24px;vertical-align:middle;width:24px}._1SqBC7PQ5dMOdF0MhPIkA8{-ms-flex-align:center;align-items:center;display:-ms-inline-flexbox;display:inline-flex;-ms-flex-direction:row;flex-direction:row;-ms-flex-pack:center;justify-content:center} The main difference here is memory sharing. Thread are most effective on multi-processor or multi-core systems. The tutorial begins with an introduction to concepts, motivations, and design considerations for using Pthreads.

A thread have 3 states: running, ready, and blocked. I am not sure on the whole API and most of them are only important if you are sharing common resources. Many non-reentrant functions return a pointer to static data. Set Detach State pthread_attr_setdetachstate(3THR) When a thread is created detached (PTHREAD_CREATE_DETACHED), its thread ID and other resources can be reused as soon as the thread terminates.Use pthread_attr_setdetachstate(3THR) when the calling thread does not want to wait for the thread to terminate.. While Pthreads may have more functions defined (around 60) than Win32 threads (I counted close to 30 thumbing through a book on Win32 threads programming) Pthreads has a single function to create threads. Me guess would be std::threads should be no faster that pthreads as std:thread were build on pthreads but I would appreciate if some have measurements supporting or rejecting my belief. Threads code is much harder to debug than fork. In this code, pthread_kill() is used to determine if the thread (which earlier received a pthread_cancel()) is still running or not. I might want to explore them later but right now I care more about the workload on running a thread. OpenMP and POSIX Threads (Pthreads). The cost of creating either may be different, but once the thread is up and running there will be no performance difference. For thread – only one process/thread table and one scheduler is needed. stack for local variables, return addresses. .ehsOqYO6dxn_Pf9Dzwu37{margin-top:0;overflow:visible}._2pFdCpgBihIaYh9DSMWBIu{height:24px}._2pFdCpgBihIaYh9DSMWBIu.uMPgOFYlCc5uvpa2Lbteu{border-radius:2px}._2pFdCpgBihIaYh9DSMWBIu.uMPgOFYlCc5uvpa2Lbteu:focus,._2pFdCpgBihIaYh9DSMWBIu.uMPgOFYlCc5uvpa2Lbteu:hover{background-color:var(--newRedditTheme-navIconFaded10);outline:none}._38GxRFSqSC-Z2VLi5Xzkjy{color:var(--newCommunityTheme-actionIcon)}._2DO72U0b_6CUw3msKGrnnT{border-top:none;color:var(--newCommunityTheme-metaText);cursor:pointer;padding:8px 16px 8px 8px;text-transform:none}._2DO72U0b_6CUw3msKGrnnT:hover{background-color:#0079d3;border:none;color:var(--newCommunityTheme-body);fill:var(--newCommunityTheme-body)} Guaranteed to be started over libc++ requires use of std::thread for notify_all_at_thread_exit the sums as by.
