Towards Predicated WCET Analysis

Amine Marref & Guillem Bernat
In this paper, we propose the use of constraint logic programming as a way of modeling context-sensitive execution-times of program segments. The context-sensitive constraints are collected automatically through static analysis or measurements. We achieve considerable tightness in comparison to traditional calculation methods that exceeded 20% in some cases during evaluation. The use of constraint-logic programming in our calculations proves to be the right choice when compared to the exponential behaviour recorded by the use of...
