Static program analysis usually consists of a number of steps, each producing partial results. For example, the points-to analysis step, calculating object references in a program, usually just provides the input for larger client analyses like reach ability and escape analyses. All these analyses are computationally intense and it is therefore vital to create parallel approaches that make use of the processing power that comes from multiple cores in modern desktop computers. The present paper presents two parallel approaches to increase the efficiency of reach ability analysis and escape analysis, based on a parallel points-to analysis. The experiments show that the two parallel approaches achieve a speed-up of 1.5 for reach ability analysis and 3.8 for escape analysis on 8 cores for a benchmark suite of Java programs.
