Abstract
This paper presents a probabilistic approach to guar­
antee the performance of a real­time system. While tra­
ditional real­time system analysis tends to guarantee that
each task instance will complete its execution before its ab­
solute deadline (hard guarantee), our approach permits to
estimate the probability that it will happen.
Such a statistical guarantee is performed based on inter­
arrival and execution times probability distributions, rather
than their worst case values. The advantage of a probabilis­
tic approach is a more efficient usage of system resources,
allowing to give a certain level of deadline guarantee to task
sets that the classical schedulability analysis would reject.
