In this article we exploit a combination of analytical and Machine Learning (ML) techniques in order to build a performance model allowing to dynamically tune the level of concurrency of applications based on Software Transactional Memory (STM). Our mixed approach has the advantage of reducing the training time of pure machine learning methods, and avoiding approximation errors typically affecting pure analytical approaches. Hence it allows very fast construction of highly reliable performance models, which can be promptly and effectively exploited for optimizing actual application runs. We also present a real implementation of a concurrency regulation architecture, based on the mixed modeling approach, which has been integrated with the open source Tiny STM package, together with experimental data related to runs of applications taken from the STAMP benchmark suite demonstrating the effectiveness of our proposal. © 2014 IEEE.
