Concurrency - Starvation

1 - About

Starvation is a forms of thread contention.

Starvation describes a situation where a thread is unable :

  • to gain regular access to shared resources
  • to make progress.

This happens when shared resources are made unavailable for long periods by “greedy” threads.

3 - Example


If one thread invokes this method frequently, other threads that also need frequent synchronized access to the same object will often be blocked.
