The paper was co-authored by experts from Barcelona Supercomputing Center: Gabriel Fernandez, Jaume Abella and Francisco J. Cazorla.
In this paper a new modeling approach for multicore systems is proposed, which is tailored for a specific processor in the space domain, that simplifies time budgeting in EDP by developing surrogate applications and an automatic framework to generate them.
This research is related to the CAST-32A Compliance solution offered by Rapita. Specifically, the Surrogate RapiDaemon tool which automatically generates a combination of RapiDaemons that mimics the interference profile generated by your real application as it runs on your multicore system. This reduces the effort needed to estimate worst-case timing behavior by letting you bound your analysis by testing your applications against realistic interference profiles.
