5:00 PM Saturday Room: 8338We will discuss the connection between Linux kernel scheduler behavior and non-deterministic nature of multithreaded and multiprocessed programs. We will look at the issues faced by a multicore programmer, and look at Maze, a new concurrent development tool. We will discuss Maze architecture and look at the tool in operation.
The target audience is software engineers, CS students and researchers, and anybody else who is interested in parallel programming, software testing, and debugging. Participants are expected to be familiar with the concept of a Linux process. The examples will be in C with the use of POSIX threads API.
