Abstract—We consider the problem of fault diagnosis in multiprocessor systems. Processors perform tests on one another; faultfree testers correctly identify the fault status of tested processors, while faulty testers can give arbitrary test results. Processors fail with arbitrary probabilities and all failures are independent. The goal is to identify correctly the status of all processors, based on the set of test results. A diagnosis algorithm is
