Unsolvability of the unboundedness problem for specification models allowing Fifo channels was proved a few years ago by Brand and Zafiropulo. The paper investigates a testing approach of that problem. Instead of reducing the model in order to give decidability results, we work with the largest possible framework and find a sufficient condition for unboundedness based on a relation between the nodes of the reachability tree. The construction of the resulting reduced tree can then be applied as well to communicating finite state machines as to Fifo-Nets. Moreover, the test extends existing decidability results. A few modifications of the relation make it available for Estelle specifications
