Composing Functional and State-based Performance Models for Analyzing Heterogeneous Real-Time Systems

By Linh T. X. Phan, Lothar Thiele, Samarjit Chakraborty and P S Thiagarajan


We present a performance analysis technique for distributed real-time systems in a setting where certain components are modeled in a purely functional manner, while the remaining components require additional modeling of state information. The functional models can be ef ciently analyzed but have restricted expressiveness. On the other hand, state-based models are more expressive and offer a richer set of analyzable properties but are computationally more expensive to analyze. We show that by appropriately composing these two classes of models it is possible to leverage on their respective advantages. To this end, we propose an interface between components that are modeled using Real-Time Calculus [Chakraborty, Künzli and Thiele, DATE 2003] and those that are modeled using Event Count Automata [Chakraborty, Phan and Thiagarajan, RTSS 2005]. The resulting modeling technique is as expressive as Event Count Automata, but is amenable to more ef cient analysis. We illustrate these advantages using a number of examples and a detailed case study
