Thread.MemoryBarrier Thread.MemoryBarrier Thread.MemoryBarrier Thread.MemoryBarrier Method

Definition

Synchronizes memory access as follows: The processor executing the current thread cannot reorder instructions in such a way that memory accesses prior to the call to MemoryBarrier() execute after memory accesses that follow the call to MemoryBarrier().

public:
 static void MemoryBarrier();
public static void MemoryBarrier ();
static member MemoryBarrier : unit -> unit
Public Shared Sub MemoryBarrier ()

Remarks

MemoryBarrier is required only on multiprocessor systems with weak memory ordering (for example, a system employing multiple Intel Itanium processors).

For most purposes, the C# lock statement, the Visual Basic SyncLock statement, or the Monitor class provide easier ways to synchronize data.
