Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to define the operational concept for a series of benchmark requirements to be used to test the ability of a system to handle hard real-time applications. Implementations of such benchmarks would be useful in evaluating scheduling algorithms, protocols, and design paradigms, as well as processors, languages, compilers, and operating systems. Several ADA programs are under development to test standard versions of the benchmark requirements and will be released into the public domain.
