STRESS: a simulator for hard real-time systems

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The STRESS environment is a collection of CASE tools for analyzing and simulating the behavior of hard real-time safety-critical applications. It is primarily intended as a means by which various scheduling and resource management algorithms can be evaluated, but can also be used to study the general behavior of applications and real-time kernels. This paper describes the structure of the STRESS language and its environment, and gives examples of its use.
