  • Summary

    Multithreaded software is subject to data races.Currently available data race detectors report such errors to thedeveloper, but consume large amounts of time and memory manyapproaches are not applicable for large software projects. Unittests containing fractions of the program lead to better results.We propose AutoRT, an approach to automatically generateparallel unit tests as target for data race detectors. AutoRT uses the Single Static Multiple Dynamic (SSMD) analysis pattern toreduce complexity and can therefore be used efficiently even inlarge software projects. We evaluate AutoRT using MicrosoftCHESS and show that with SSMD all 110 data races containedin our sample programs can be located.
