Robustness is a correctness notion for concurrent programs running under relaxed consistency models. The task is to check that the relaxed behavior coincides (up to traces) with sequential consistency (SC). Although computationally simple on paper (robustness has been shown to be PSPACE-complete for TSO, PGAS, and Power), building a practical robustness checker remains a challenge. Read More

We address the problem of checking state reachability for programs running under Total Store Order (TSO). The problem has been shown to be decidable but the cost is prohibitive, namely non-primitive recursive. We propose here to give up completeness. Read More

Power is a RISC architecture developed by IBM, Freescale, and several other companies and implemented in a series of POWER processors. The architecture features a relaxed memory model providing very weak guarantees with respect to the ordering and atomicity of memory accesses. Due to these weaknesses, some programs that are correct under sequential consistency (SC) show undesirable effects when run under Power. Read More

Partitioned global address space (PGAS) is a parallel programming model for the development of applications on clusters. It provides a global address space partitioned among the cluster nodes, and is supported in programming languages like C, C++, and Fortran by means of APIs. In this paper we provide a formal model for the semantics of single instruction, multiple data programs using PGAS APIs. Read More

We present algorithms for checking and enforcing robustness of concurrent programs against the Total Store Ordering (TSO) memory model. A program is robust if all its TSO computations correspond to computations under the Sequential Consistency (SC) semantics. We provide a complete characterization of non-robustness in terms of so-called attacks: a restricted form of (harmful) out-of-program-order executions. Read More
