  • Do a quick performance check in 60 seconds
  • Use a number of different tools available in unix
  • Use flamegraphs of the callstack if you have access to them
  • Best performance winds are elimiating unnecessary wrok, for example a thread stack in a loop, eliminating bad config
  • Mantras: Don't do it (elimiate); do it again (caching); do it less (polling), do it when they're not looking, do it concurrently, do it more cheaply

What is Strict Aliasing and Why do we Care?

What is the Strict Aliasing Rule and Why do we care?

(OR Type Punning, Undefined Behavior and Alignment, Oh My!)

What is strict aliasing? First we will describe what is aliasing and then we can learn what being strict about it means.

In C and C++ aliasing has to do with what expression types we are allowed to access stored values through. In both C and C++ the standard specifies which expression types are allowed to alias which types. The compiler and optimizer are allowed to assume we follow the aliasing rules strictly, hence the term strict aliasing rule. If we attempt to access a value using a type not allowed it is classified as undefined behavior(UB). Once we have undefined behavior all bets are off, the results of our program are no longer reliable.

Unfortunately with strict aliasing violations, we will often obtain the results we expect, leaving the possibility the a future version of a compiler with a new optimization will break code we th
