Abstract

Recent results on Network Calculus applied to FIFO networks show that, in the general case, end-to-end delay bounds cannot be computed in a closed form, whereas solving non-linear programming problems is instead required. Furthermore, it has been shown that these bounds may be larger than the actual worst-case delay, which also calls for computing lower bounds on the latter. This paper presents DEBORAH (Delay Bound Rating AlgoritHm), a tool for computing upper and lower bounds to the worst-case delay in FIFO tandem networks. DEBORAH can analyze tandems of up to several tens of nodes in reasonable time on off-the-shelf hardware. We overview the various algorithms used by DEBORAH to perform the various steps of the computations, and describe its usage.
