Lazy sequentialization has emerged as one of the most effective techniques to find bugs in concurrent programs. However, the size of the shared global and thread-local state still poses a problem for further scaling. We therefore use abstract interpretation to minimize the representation of the concurrent program’s state variables. More specifically, we run the Frama-C abstract interpretation tool over the sequentialized program output by Lazy-CSeq to compute over-approximating intervals for all (original) state variables and then exploit CBMC’s bitvector support to reduce the number of bits required to represent these in the sequentialized program. We demonstrate that this leads to substantial performance gains on complex instances.

Abstract

Lazy sequentialization has emerged as one of the most effective techniques to find bugs in concurrent programs. However, the size of the shared global and thread-local state still poses a problem for further scaling. We therefore use abstract interpretation to minimize the representation of the concurrent program’s state variables. More specifically, we run the Frama-C abstract interpretation tool over the sequentialized program output by Lazy-CSeq to compute over-approximating intervals for all (original) state variables and then exploit CBMC’s bitvector support to reduce the number of bits required to represent these in the sequentialized program. We demonstrate that this leads to substantial performance gains on complex instances.
