/sup T/ask pools are data structures for the dynamic distribution of work to processors. This paper compares several realizations of task pools resulting from different internal organizations such as shared or distributed organizations as well as a combination of them. The effect of different memory managers is also considered. The paper gives a detailed comparison of the resulting performance for task pools implemented in C with POSIX threads for selected irregular applications on current multiprocessor machines.
