Fully automatic benchmarking of real-time operating systems

by Larsson, Anders

Abstract (Summary)
Testing and evaluating the performance of different software solutions is important in order to compare them with each other. Measuring, or benchmark, software is not a trivial task and conducting tests in a real-time environment implicates it further. Still, measuring is the only way to provide useful information, for example, which real-time operating system is best suitable for a specific hardware configuration.The purpose of this project is to design a benchmark support system, which automatically performs benchmarks of a real-time operating system in a host-target environment. The benchmarks are conducted according to a user-defined specification and the support system also allows a developer to create configurable benchmarks.The benchmark support system described also allows parameters to increase monotonically within a specified interval during benchmark execution. This is an important feature in order to detect unpredictable behavior of the real-time system.
