Dynamic Race Detection in Parallel Programs

Jannesari Ladani, Ali

Abstract: A dynamic approach for race detection based on a synthesis of lockset and happens-before analyses is proposed in this work. The approach provides a lower rate of both false positives and false negatives (missed races). It is able to deal with ad-hoc synchronizations, i.e., programmer-defined synchronizations in source code. Our approach is automatic and can also identify synchronization operations from unknown libraries, resulting in a universal race detector.
