Efficient and precise datarace detection for multithreaded object-oriented programs

By Jong-deok Choi


We present a novel approach to dynamic datarace detection for multithreaded object-oriented programs. Past techniques for onthe-fly datarace detection either sacrificed precision for performance, leading to many false positive datarace reports, or maintained precision but incurred significant overheads in the range of 3 ¢ to 30¢. In contrast, our approach results in very few false positives and runtime overhead in the 13 % to 42 % range, making it both efficient and precise. This performance improvement is the result of a unique combination of complementary static and dynamic optimization techniques
