In this paper, we set out the goal to revisit the results of "Starring into the Abyss [...] of Concurrency Control with [1000] Cores" [27] and analyse in-memory DBMSs on today's large hardware. Despite the original assumption of the authors, today we do not see single-socket CPUs with 1000 cores. Instead multi-socket hardware made its way into production data centres. Hence, we follow up on this prior work with an evaluation of the characteristics of concurrency control schemes on real production multi-socket hardware with 1568 cores. To our surprise, we made several interesting findings which we report on in this paper.
