tbb concurrent_hash_map implementation


I am trying to use tbb’s concurrent_hash_map to increase my application’s concurrent performance. Read up about it and implemented it

according to my application but I am seeing crashes..

So, my application is a multi threaded application where I am storing pairs, key is char* and the value is integer. Pseudo code looks like this:

    void  storeName(const char * name)   {

              int id=0;

              // This creates an pair object of name and index

              pair object(name);

              // concurrent_hash_table is an object of tbb::concurrent_hash_map and is declared in .h file

              // read_lock is a const accessor for reading. This find function searches for char* in the table

             // and if not found, create a write_lock.

              bool found = concurrent_hash_table.find(read_lock, name);  

           if (found == FALSE) {

                        concurrent_hash_table.insert(write_lock, name);

// Get integer id somehow.

write_lock->second = id; 


             } else {

// if the name is found in the table then get the value and release it later

id = read_lock->second;




As per my understanding, I am good with the implementation but as I said, there are multiple crashes coming when find returns me FALSE.

Crash have traces of mutexs as well.


Please suggest. Eagerly waiting.
