>> Is there any significant benefit to making a database lock-free? <<

You have logical concurrency control and optimistic concurrency control. Both methods let you read and write at the same time. And obviosuly, you save the overhead of locking.

Look at Innerbase (aka Firebird) and its performance. Received on Sat Nov 05 2005 - 18:10:36 CST
