Microsoft CHESS

9 Nov 2009

I was talking with some folks from Microsoft Technical Computing Group last week, and they turned me on to Microsoft CHESS. Extremely cool.

Their description:

CHESS is a tool for finding and reproducing Heisenbugs in concurrent programs. CHESS repeatedly runs a concurrent test ensuring that every run takes a different interleaving. If an interleaving results in an error, CHESS can reproduce the interleaving for improved debugging. CHESS is available for both managed and native programs.
