PinPlay: a framework for deterministic replay and reproducible analysis of parallel programs

  title={PinPlay: a framework for deterministic replay and reproducible analysis of parallel programs},
  author={Harish Patil and Cristiano Pereira and Mack Stallcup and Gregory Lueck and James Cownie},
Analysis of parallel programs is hard mainly because their behavior changes from run to run. We present an execution capture and deterministic replay system that enables repeatable analysis of parallel programs. Our goal is to provide an easy-to-use framework for capturing, deterministically replaying, and analyzing execution of large programs with reasonable runtime and disk usage. Our system, called PinPlay, is based on the popular Pin dynamic instrumentation system hence is very easy to use… CONTINUE READING
