The usefulness of software monitors in testing large programs is discussed. Several types of testing strategies based on the use of monitors are surveyed. Since there is a computational overhead involved in employing monitors, attempts are made to minimize the number of monitors employed. This optimization problem is formulated and analyzed in graph-theoretic terms. Implementation aspects are considered through both discussion and examples.
