Software transactional memories (STMs) promise simple and efficient concurrent programming. Several correctness properties have been proposed for STMs. Based on a bounded conflict graph algorithm for verifying correctness of STMs, we develop TRACER, a tool for runtime verification of STM implementations. The novelty of TRACER lies in the way it combines coarse and precise runtime analyses to guarantee sound and complete verification in an efficient manner. We implement TRACER in the TL2 STM implementation. We evaluate the performance of TRACER on STAMP benchmarks. While a precise runtime verification technique based on conflict graphs results in an average slowdown of 60x, the two-level approach of TRACER performs complete verification with an average slowdown of around 25x across different benchmarks.
