Combining Symbolic Execution and Path Enumeration in Worst-Case Execution Time Analysis

Djemai Kebbal & Pascal Sainrat
his paper examines the problem of determining bounds on execution time of real-time programs. Execution time estimation is generally useful in real-time software verification phase, but may be used in other phases of the design and execution of real-time programs (scheduling, automatic parallelizing, etc.). This paper is devoted to the worst-case execution time (WCET) analysis. We present a static WCET analysis approach aimed to automatically extract flow information used in WCET estimate computing. The approach...
