Proceedings of the 11th International Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Methods in Verification PDMC 2012 (London, United Kingdom), September 2012


Distributed verification uses the resources of several computers to speed up the verification and, even more importantly, to access large amounts of memory beyond the capabilities of a single computer. In this paper, we describe the distributed verification tools provided by the CADP (Construction and Analysis of Distributed Processes) toolbox, especially focusing on its most recent tools for management, inspection, and on-the-fly exploration of distributed state spaces. We also report about large-scale experiments carried out using these tools on Grid'5000 using up to 512 distributed processes.
