RepTFD: Replay Based Transient Fault Detection
In the experiments, when we mention “the performance of RepTFD”, we refer to the performance of redundantly executing an 8-thread application on 16-core CMP (the first-run and the replayrun of the application are simultaneously executed on 8 checked cores and 8 redundant cores respectively).
RepTFD: Replay Based Transient Fault Detection
RepTFD pays negligible cost to enforce non-inferrable execution order, since there is quite few non-inferrable execution orders that need to be enforced in the replay-run.
RepTFD: Replay Based Transient Fault Detection
