A big impediment in developing and maintaining concurrent software is our inability to effectively deal with race conditions.? These â??Heisenbugs??? are hard to find.? Even when found, they are hard to reproduce â?? making it next to impossible to debug and fix them.? In this talk, Madan presents a series of tools from Microsoft Research that help developers and testers find, reproduce, and debug race conditions.
Madan will explain the theory underlying these tools and demonstrate their effectiveness in finding thread-safety violations, data races, deadlocks, and livelocks in product-quality software.? The tools include CHESS, which uses model checking techniques to effectively unit test concurrent software, and Cuzz, which uses randomized algorithms to dramatically increase the bug-finding capability of existing concurrency tests.? He will also explain various correctness criteria useful for developing reliable concurrent software.
