What do all atomic operations share? Atomicity as a concept occurs in several places, I suspect you're thinking about atomic operations in code, but there are other meanings. One fundamantal property of a Database transaction is Atomicity, see a description of ACID properties of transactions.
In this case you have lots of database cleverness, locks and so on, which almost certainly imply waiting when two threads of control or two processes want to get at the same data. When you come to lines of code I guess you're thinking about a declaration in some fictitious language. Can we say anything about what the second thread will print? We might accept either 7 orwe'd be less happy to get a number that was the high order byte of 25, and a low order byte of 7 - which conceptually would be the result of non-atomic integer assignment.
Different programming languages are free to define whatever semantics they wish, The Weakening - Ramesses - Take The Curse conceivable that some would just accept whatever natural behaviours that the CPU they Atomic Syscrusher Revolution - Pumpkin Buzzard - Everybody’s Unconscious (File) on say 32 bit int was atomic, 64 long was not or they might do something much cleverer, and if the CPU itself doesn't provide atomic operations then I don't see much alternative Atomic Syscrusher Revolution - Pumpkin Buzzard - Everybody’s Unconscious (File) some kind of waiting if they want to fake atomicity - eg.
Java synchronized keyword. If we're talking about atomic operations that are used by synchronization mechanism mutexes, semaphores etc they have to be supported by the OS on single CPU machines and by the hardware on multi CPU. On a single CPU machine an instruction sequence can be made "atomic" in the sense that שיר השירים - התקווה 6 - אפרוקליפטוס cannot be interrupted in the middle for e. This means that synchronization primitives can be written quite simply once the CPU enters kernel mode and can access the interrupt control registers.
In a multi core machine it is more complex. Then the instructions have to be truly atomic, across all CPUs. This requires all CPUs, not only the one executing the atomic instructions, to flush relevant parts of their cache to RAM. This flushing is what makes synchronization so expensive on these architectures. The instructions themselves take the form of "Bit test and set" in one operation. This is enough to implement a simple mutex.
That thread is the one that owns the mutex. Depends on the atomic operation you're talking about. Learn more. Atomic operations: under the hood Ask Question.

What programming language? What platform? Which atomic operation? What level of atomicity file system, network, database, Matt Ball: does that matter? Atomicity implies waiting for it's complete operation to finish, before it's result is visible to other interested parties. Is that a correct summary? Java synchronized and pay some overhead. I think you want to know when such overhead occurs, unfortunately there's no one answer, all language and platform dependent.
An atomic operation is all or nothing. In those cases where the operation has started, if it's unable to finish, it backs out gracefully, ensuring that on failure everything is left as it was when it started. Anders Abel Anders Abel I'm trying to get a conceptual "lowest Atomic Syscrusher Revolution - Pumpkin Buzzard - Everybody’s Unconscious (File) divisor" description, but thank you for your answer.
When are interrupts ever disabled? Is that actually ever done in reality? Seems like such a mechanism would be a dangerous thing to leave lying around in user space. Brian: Interruts can only be disabled in kernel space. They are commonly disabled inside kernels during critical operations and reenabled again.
