Abstract

In this paper, we present the Disco Deterministic Network Calculator v2 – our continuation in the effort to provide open-source tool support for worst-case performance analysis. The major achievement of this release is the provision of a well-documented network calculus implementation that enables for straight-forward application as well as easy extensibility. Apart from a fair amount of bug fixes that improve the tightness of the derived bounds, our efforts resulted in two main differences to the previous versions: the first is the rigorous modularization of network calculus analyses into their distinct components and the second is a comprehensive set of functional tests for our tool.
