Adapting Lincheck Concurrency Testing Framework for C/C++ Programs

Student: Aleksandr Gaev

Supervisor: Denis Moskvin

Faculty: St. Petersburg School of Physics, Mathematics, and Computer Science

Educational Programme: Applied Mathematics and Information Science (Bachelor)

Year of Graduation: 2021

The process of developing multithreaded programs is much more complex than developing sequential programs. There are many different reasons for this: reordering operations by compilers or weakened memory models. All this leads to the need to test multithreaded programs even more thoroughly. Various tools were developed for these tasks, but unfortunately, there are few such tools for C++, which is confirmed by the fact that existing multithreaded libraries in C++ develop their infrastructure for testing. The Lincheck tool has been adapted for testing programs in C++ to help such libraries in testing. An interface was provided to use Linchceck from C++, and a dynamic library was generated to connect to existing projects. The tool was applied to existing popular multithreaded libraries in C++. Keywords: multithreading, testing, linearizability.
