Abstract
This paper presents a tool for concurrency testing (abbreviated as ConTest) and some of its extensions. The extensions (called plug-ins in this paper) are implemented through the listener architecture of ConTest. Two plug-ins for runtime detection of common concurrent bugs are presented-the first (Eraser+) is able to detect data races while the second (AtomRace) is able to detect not only data races but also more general bugs caused by violation of atomicity presumptions. A third plug-in presented in this paper is designed to hide bugs that made it into the field so that when problems are detected they can be circumvented. Several experiments demonstrate the capabilities of these plug-ins.
