Yes: our approach can be used to get an in-depth understanding of how sensitive software can be to other software. For example:
- Task 1 executes acceptably in isolation and with most other tasks, but if it executes simultaneously with Task 127, its function X takes 10 times as long to return.
- This intelligence can feed into system integration activities to ensure that function X can never execute at the same time as Task 127.
The information from this type of analysis can also provide insights into potential improvements to the implementation of the two tasks. Sensitive tasks are not always the guilty party: other tasks can be overly aggressive and cause delays in the rest of the system.
