\Software developed at North Carolina State University (NC State) can identify and fix so-called hang bugs, which cause websites or applications to get stuck but not crash, in a matter of seconds.
HangFix automatically detects hang bugs, diagnoses the issue, and applies a patch that corrects the root cause of the error.
In a test of the HangFix prototype on 42 real-world hang bugs in 10 commonly used cloud server applications, 40 were fixed in seconds; NC State's Helen Gu said the other bugs were identified and partially fixed, but required additional input from programmers to completely remediate.
