Reactive real-time systems must react to external events within time constraints: Triggered tasks must execute within deadlines. Through performance stress testing, the risks of performance failures in real-time systems are reduced. We develop a methodology for the derivation of test cases that aims at maximizing the chances of critical deadline misses within a system. This testing activity is referred to as performance stress testing. Performance stress testing is based on the system task… CONTINUE READING
