Towards Distributed Memory Parallel Program Analysis

08161.QuinlanDaniel.Paper.1568.pdf (0.5 MB)


Our work presents a parallel attribute evaluation for distributed memory parallel
computer architectures where previously only shared memory parallel support for
this technique has been developed. Attribute evaluation is a part of how attribute
grammars are used for program analysis within modern compilers. Within this
work, we have extended ROSE, a open compiler infrastructure, with a distributed
memory parallel attribute evaluation mechanism to support user defined global
program analysis required for some forms of security analysis which can not be
addresses by a file by file view of large scale applications. As a result, user
defined security analyzes may now run in parallel without the user having to
specify the way data is communicated between processors. The automation of
communication enables an extensible open-source parallel program analysis
