A Practitioner's Handbook for Real-Time Analysis: Guide to Rate Monotonic Analysis for Real-Time Systems

A Practitioner's Handbook for Real-Time Analysis: Guide to Rate Monotonic Analysis for Real-Time Systems
  • Abstract

    A Practitioner's Handbook for Real-Time Analysis: Guide to Rate Monotonic Analysis for Real-Time Systems contains a collection of quantitative methods that enable real-time systems developers to understand, analyze, and predict the timing behavior of many real-time systems. The handbook has been created to serve as a guide for developers as they analyze and design real-time systems using rate monotonic analysis (RMA). The handbook can be used as a reference or as the text for advanced courses on the subject.

    The methods are practical and theoretically sound, and can be used to assess design tradeoffs and to troubleshoot system timing behavior. RMA is the name given to the collection of methods discussed in this book.      

    The handbook includes a framework for describing and categorizing the timing aspects of real-time systems, step-by-step techniques of performing timing analysis, numerous examples of real-time situations to which the techniques can be applied, and two case studies.      

    Handbook topics covered include:     

    • fundamentals of RMA
    • a framework for describing real-time systems
    • techniques for analyzing timing behavior
    • basic real-time situations
    • advanced real-time situations
    • effects of operating system and runtime services on timing analysis
    • analyzing complex systems
    • designing with rate monotonic analysis   

    The handbook addresses the following situations:

    • handling periodic events
    • designing tasks that must synchronize to share common data
    • handling aperiodic events
    • controlling jitter
    • message passing paradigms
    • issues in multiprocessor and distributed systems
    • new events and actions introduced by operating system services
    • limited representations
    • presence or absence of particular operating system features
    • support for RMA concepts in standard operating and runtime systems

    More information about this book is available through Kluwer Academic  Publishers.
