    • Abstract

       

      The fault-tolerant multiprocessor (ftmp) is a bus-based multiprocessor architecture with real-time and fault-tolerance features and is used in critical aerospace applications. A preliminary performance evaluation is of crucial importance in the design of such systems. In this paper, we review stochastic Petri nets (spn) and developspn-based performance models forftmp. These performance models enable efficient computation of important performance measures such as processing power, bus contention, bus utilization, and waiting times.
