Distributed computation of vector clocks in Petri net unfoldings for test selection. (English) Zbl 1448.93183
Summary: It has been shown that annotating Petri nets unfoldings with time stamps allows to build distributed testers for distributed systems. However, the construction of the annotated unfolding of a distributed system currently remains a centralized task. In this paper we extend a distributed unfolding technique in order to annotate the resulting unfolding with time stamps. This allows distributed construction of distributed testers for distributed systems.
