In a multi-threaded computing system, a locking system is utilized to cooperatively manage a shared cache between a plurality of user threads and a paging manager thread. To manage the locks, the paging manager maintains pointers between a process memory space assigned to each user thread, a global system data structure assigned to each user thread, and a page control block for each locked page in memory. These pointers and additional flags identify locked pages and their owners, and facilitates cleanup of stale locks.
