I recently presented a paper at the WATERS 2010 workshop held during the Euromicro Technical Committee on Real-Time Systems (ECRTS) conference. The aim of the WATERS workshop was to showcase tools being used by real-time researchers to make published results easier to reproduce and compare.
My paper applied Roger Stafford's randfixedsum algorithm to taskset generation. The aim of this work is to enable fair test case generation for assessing schedulability tests and design space exploration (e.g. task allocation) algorithms.
I have now released a tool which implements the algorithms described in the paper. The software is available from the WATERS 2010 Tools page.
Please let me know in the comments section if you find this software useful or have suggestions for more features.
The proceedings of the conference, including this paper, are available for download from the WATERS 2010 site.
I would like to thank Tommaso Cucinotta and Giuseppe Lipari for organising the workshop and making it a great success. The tool demo session, in particular, allowed the tool authors to show off their work and made other attendees aware of tools which may benefit their research.
