[SMT-COMP] StarExec questions

No preprocessor should be required to check the output of your tool.

In `SMT-COMP 2016 (273)’ the 273 is just the identifier of the post processor (e.g. it is the 273rd one that was uploaded). This is the post processor that you should use.

You are correct that the table summarises the results as given by the post processor. However, I don’t always find the numbers in this table that helpful and tend to rely more on the downloaded CSV file (see next). For some post processors “wrong” does not always mean an error.

In the “actions" tab you can download the results of the post processing as a CSV file by selecting “job information”. Hopefully the fields are self-explanatory.

The “job pairs” tab can be used to find the results of particular jobs. You can click on the status of a job to get more information about the job, including the output from the run. This can help debug what is going on. You can also download all unprocessed outputs form the aforementioned “actions” tab.

Hope that helps,
