Abstract

This paper describes FULT, a user-level thread scheduling system that uses bit-vectors to represent runnable threads. This system is aimed at efficient support of event driven task scheduling. We show a significant reduction in the cost of signal and wait primitives, high scalability, and similar performance for task spawning and other operations, compared conventional task schedulers that use work queues.
