Hope all is well.
This is my first email to the list. Not sure if it's the place to ask general technical questions. Please accept my apologies if I'm violating any rules of this study group.
I would like to seek an opinion regarding boost:: interprocess:: message_queue vs boost::lockfree::queue.
Has anyone used boost::lockfree::queue or any of Boost.LockFree data structures in any embedded platforms?
I have a producer-consumer scenario involving multiple threads. Tried out a sample code using int values pushing to/consuming from the queue & analysed elapsed time between push/pop on a Linux x86. It's found boost::lockfree::queue gives better time performance results compared to boost:: interprocess:: message_queue.
Haven't tried this on actual hardware target yet. Our hardware target is an ARM based processor running QNX RTOS.
I'm listening to Herb's CppCon talk on Lock-free programming now.
It would be great if any of you has any other recommendations/pros or cons I need to be aware of before I fix boost::lockfree::queue rather than boost:: interprocess:: message_queue in our production code?
Thank you in advance,
