Timing failures refer to a situation where the environment in which a system operates does not behave as expected regarding the timing assumptions, that is, the timing constraints are not met. In the immense body of work on the designing fault-tolerant systems, the type of failures that are usually considered are, process failures, link failures, messages loss and memory failures; and it is usually (implicitly) assumed that there are no timing failures. In this paper we investigate the ability… CONTINUE READING
