Abstract

This chapter discusses the main paradigms concerning real-time in distributed systems, in the viewpoint of the system architect. Namely, the chapter addresses: specifications for describing timeliness; timing failure detection; the real-time entity-representative relation; the time-value duality of real-time entities; real-time communication; flow control; scheduling; clock synchronization; input-output. We explain these paradigms in practical terms, giving examples of the problems they solve and of their limitations.
