A Framework for the Busy Time Calculation of Multiple Correlated Events

Simon Schliecker, Matthias Ivers, Jan Staschulat & Rolf Ernst
Many approaches to determine the response time of a task have difficulty to model tasks with multiple memory or coprocessor accesses with variable access times during the execution. As the request times highly depend on system setup and state, they can not be trivially bounded. If they are bounded by a constant value, large discrepancies between average and worst case make the focus on single worst cases vulnerable to overestimation. We present a novel approach...
