Re: Python Query: Related to locking a resource in a multithreadeden vironment

Hello All,

I've a configuration.i ni file. This particular can be accessed by several
threads of my application. Each thread can read/write configuration
parameters from/to the configuration.i ni file. I am using threading (Rlock)
to lock the resource (configuration. ini file) while accessing it from any
thread. I use the file available at
http://www.voidspace.org.uk/python/configobj.html for read/write.

I did the following in one of my files:

import threading
class Synchronization :
def __init__(self):
self.mutex = threading.RLock ()

Now this I can create instances of the class Synchronization and use
acquire/release to work on the shared resource. But every thread would need
to import this class and hence each thread would create a separate instance
of the class. This means several lock variables. But I think we need a
global lock flag that is accessible across all the threads.

How do i do this?

Please let me know ASAP.

Thanks In Advance,
Does making it a class level instead of instance level variable not work?

Stand Fast,
tjg. [Timothy Grant]

Hi, I've recently been working on an application which does quite a bit of searching through large data structures and string matching, and I was thinking that it would help to put some of this CPU-intensive work in another thread, but of course this won't work because of Python's GIL. There's a lot of past discussion on this, and I want to bring it up again because with the work on Python 3000, I think it is worth trying
