The Flight Data Recorder continually logs memory races in a multithreaded execution, enabling the deterministic replay invaluable for debugging concurrency errors, yet adds only modest hardware to a multicore chip. In experiments, recording incurred less than 2 percent runtime overhead.
Index Terms:
multicore, multithreading, determinism, shared-memory race recording, cache coherence
