Early stage timing verification on CAN traditionally relies on simulation and schedulability analysis, also known as worst-case response time (WCRT) analysis. Despite recent progresses, the latter technique remains pessimistic espe cially in complex networking architectures with gateways and heterogeneous communication stacks. Indeed, there are practical cases where no exact WCRT analysis is available, and merely upper bounds on the response times can be derived, on the basis of which unnecessary conservative design choices may be made. Simulation, on the other hand, does not provide any guarantees per se and, in the context of critical networks, should only be used along with an adequate methodology. In this paper, we argue for the use of quantiles of the response time distribution as performance metrics providing an adjustable trade-off between safety and resource usage optimization. We discuss how the exact value of the quantile to consider should be chosen with regard to the criticality of the frames, and illustrate the approach on two typical automotive use -cases. [less ▲]
