Abstract: This paper proposes a novel technique for automated derivation of fine-grained, application-specific error detectors. An algorithm based on dynamic traces of application execution is developed for extracting the optimal set of error detectors for a target application. An automatic framework is proposed for synthesizing the derived detectors in hardware and enabling low-overhead run-time checking of the application execution. Coverage (evaluated using fault injection) of the error detectors obtained using the proposed methodology, the additional hardware resources, and performance overhead for several benchmark programs are also reported.
