Abstract

We introduce StarExec, a public web-based service built to facilitate the experimental evaluation of logic solvers, broadly understood as automated tools based on formal reasoning. Examples of such tools include theorem provers, SAT and SMT solvers, constraint solvers, model checkers, and software verifiers. The service, running on a compute cluster with 380 processors and 23 terabytes of disk space, is designed to provide a single piece of storage and computing infrastructure to logic solving communities and their members. It aims at reducing duplication of effort and resources as well as enabling individual researchers or groups with no access to comparable infrastructure. StarExec allows community organizers to store, manage and make available benchmark libraries; competition organizers to run logic solver competitions; and community members to do comparative evaluations of logic solvers on public or private benchmark problems.
