Communication Services for Real-Time Systems: An Examination of ARTS over XTPReport
ARTS is a distributed real-time operating system designed to provide the user with a predictable, analyzable, and reliable service. The Xpress Transfer Protocol is a next-generation, high performance, high functionality transport layer protocol. We examine the role of the communication subsystem in providing a real-time system communication support. We use the ARTS system and XTP as a case study for understanding the needs of a distributed real-time system and how a transport layer protocol may be able to help meet those needs. Finally, we offer suggestions about how ARTS may be able to take advantage of features in XTP, and how XTP may be augmented to better serve a distributed real-time system such as ARTS.
