Abstract : Cache prediction for real-time systems in a preemptive scheduling context is still an open issue despite its practical importance. In this paper, we propose a modeling approach for taking into account the cache memory in realtime scheduling analysis. The goal is to have a simple but practical implementation to handle the cache memory with a real-time scheduling analyzer. The proposed contribution consists of three main parts: (1) modeling the targeted system with the Architecture Analysis and Design Language (AADL), (2) applying the cache analysis methods in a real time scheduling analysis tool and (3) performing scheduling simulation to access schedulability. For such a purpose, we present an extension of both the scheduling analysis toolCheddarand of the AADL modeling language in order to integrate the cache modeling and analysis methodology we proposed. Experiments are presented to illustrate our propositions. They provide results on analysis that show examples of the timing impact of task preemption as well as the increase in overall responses time of the task set. This impact is important and the developed tool provides means to precisely assess it.
