FLoM provides numeric resources useful to limit the number of concurrent processes at a desired value:

FLoM provides resource sets useful to exclusively access to a set of named resources:

FLoM provides hierarchical resources useful to model filesystem objects (files and directorories) and/or scenarios where you have to deal with an object hierarchy:

  • hierarchical resources, simple file usage: Use Case 14
  • hierarchical resources, hierarchical locks: Use Case 15

FLoM provides “future events” useful to model synchronization with task that can start in the future:

FLoM provides sequence resources useful to synchronize and to get a unique sequence number with the same atomic operation:

FLoM provides timestamp resources useful to synchronize and to get a distinct timestamp with the same atomic operation:
