A more powerful signaling construct is provided by the Monitor class, via the static methods Wait and Pulse and PulseAll. The principle is that you write the signaling logic yourself using custom flags and fields enclosed in lock statementsand then introduce Wait and Pulse commands to prevent spinning.
Furthermore, Wait and Pulse can be amenable in situations where all of the wait handles are parsimoniously challenged. Wait and Pulse signaling, however, has some disadvantages over event wait handles: You must remember to protect all variables related to the signaling logic with locks. Wait and Pulse also have a peculiar aversion to dabblers: Fortunately, there is a simple pattern of use that tames Wait and Pulse.
In terms of performance, calling Pulse takes around a hundred nanoseconds on a era desktop — about a third of the time it takes to call Set on a wait handle. The overhead for waiting on uncontended signal is entirely up to you — because you implement the logic yourself using ordinary fields and variables.
In practice, this is very simple and amounts purely to the cost of taking a lock. Define a single field for use as the synchronization object, such as: This pattern allows any thread to wait at any time for any condition. Wait method does the following, in order: If the lock is contended, then it blocks until the lock is available.
This means that despite appearances, no lock is held on the synchronization object while Monitor. Wait awaits a pulse: Wait is designed for use within a lock statement; it throws an exception if called otherwise. The same goes for Monitor.
As soon as we release the lock, the worker resumes execution, reiterating its while loop.
The Pulse and PulseAll methods release threads blocked on a Wait statement. Pulse releases a maximum of one thread; PulseAll releases them all. In our example, just one thread is blocked, so their effects are identical. If more than one thread is waiting, calling PulseAll is usually safest with our suggested pattern of use.
In our pattern, pulsing indicates that something might have changed, and that waiting threads should recheck their blocking conditions. In the Work method, this check is accomplished via the while loop. The waiter then decides whether to continue, not the notifier.
If pulsing by itself is taken as instruction to continue, the Wait construct is stripped of any real value; you end up with an inferior version of an AutoResetEvent.
A race ensues between the main thread and the worker. If Wait executes first, the signal works. If Pulse executes first, the pulse is lost and the worker remains forever stuck. This is what makes Wait and Pulse versatile: Each worker thread will execute a method called Consume.
We can create the threads and start them in a single loop as follows: Action delegate in the. NET Framework, which is defined as follows: We can still represent tasks that call method with parameters, though — by wrapping the call in an anonymous delegate or lambda expression: WriteLine "Enqueuing 10 items For the sake of efficiency, we call Pulse instead of PulseAll when enqueuing an item.
This is because at most one consumer need be woken per item. Count is nonzero, meaning that at least one item is outstanding. We must dequeue the item before releasing the lock — otherwise, the item may not be there for us to dequeue the presence of other threads means things can change while you blink!
After the item is dequeued, we release the lock immediately. If we held on to it while performing the task, we would unnecessarily block other consumers and producers. Locking briefly is advantageous when using Wait and Pulse and in general as it avoids unnecessarily blocking other threads.These Algebraic Expressions Worksheets will create algebraic statements with two variables for the student to evaluate.
