Detection of distributed predicates (also referred to as runtime verification) can be used to verify that a particular run of a given distributed program satisfies certain properties (represented as predicates). Consequently, distributed predicates detection techniques can be used to effectively improve the dependability of a given distributed application. Due to concurrency, the detection of distributed predicates can incur significant overhead. Most of the effective techniques developed to

In this paper, we have presented a technique based on harmony search to efficiently detect the satisfaction of a predicate under the possibly modality. We have implemented the proposed technique and we have conducted several experiments to demonstrate its effectiveness.
