From the reviews of the third edition:

“The book is a classic that results from the author’s two decades of teaching and research activities. The present third edition is extended by many meaningful issues … additional protocols, new concepts, exercises, etc. … this is a useful, serious book that collects and uniformly presents and compares existing techniques for design and implementation of real-time systems. … I recommend this book, not only as a textbook for students, but also as a handbook for researchers and practitioners working in this field.” (Fevzi Belli, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1246, 2012)

“This book describes and analyzes many algorithms for scheduling such tasks in real-time systems. … The book can be used as an undergraduate- and graduate-level textbook for courses involving real-time systems. The initial chapters are a good introduction to real-time systems for beginners. Professionals and researchers working with real-time systems will find the scheduling algorithms useful.” (Maulik A. Dave, ACM Computing Reviews, July, 2012)


Real-time systems play a crucial role in our society, supporting several important application areas, such as nuclear and chemical plant control, flight control systems, traffic control in airports, harbors, and train stations, telecommunication systems, industrial automation, robotics, defensive military systems, space missions, and so on. Despite such a large number of critical applications, most of the current real-time systems are still designed and implemented using low level programming and empirical techniques without the support of a precise scientific methodology. The consequence of this approach is a lack of reliability, which in critical applications may cause serious damage to the environment or result in significant human loss. This book is a basic treatise on real-time computing, with particular emphasis on predictable scheduling algorithms. The main objectives are to introduce the basic concepts of real-time computing, illustrate the most significant results in the field, and provide the basic methodologies for designing predictable computing systems which can be used to support critical control applications.

The text presents fundamental concepts which are clearly defined at the beginning of each chapter, and each algorithm is described through concrete examples, figures and tables. After introducing the basic concepts of real-time computing, the book covers such topics as taxonomy of scheduling algorithms, models of tasks with explicit time constraints, handling tasks with precedence relations, periodic and aperiodic task scheduling, access protocols to shared resources, asynchronous communication mechanisms, schedulability analysis, and handling overload conditions. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe .

Provides practical hard RT techniques based on theory. 2. September 2000
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Highly recommended. This is the book that I loan to software engineers, computer science new grads (and sometimes not so new grads), that don't understand what hard real-time is, don't understand that it matters, and most importantly, don't understand that real-time performance can be predicted by the appropriate choice of a scheduling policy. By understanding the concepts in this book, the real-time system architect is provided a variety of techniques that can be used to design a system whose timing performance can be analyzed, predicted and guaranteed by proof.
The author presents algorithms to implement aperiodic and periodic task scheduling, fixed- and dynamic-priority servers, resource access policies. He gives practical examples of their application, discusses their drawbacks, and compares them as a function of performance, complexity, memory requirements, etc.. In general the author presents an algorithm by first giving a practical explanation of how the algorithm works, follows this with a schedulability analysis and guarantee of schedulability. Theorems with proofs are introduced as necessary when they are needed as part of the analysis. This is a practical book whose content is based on theoretical foundations. Published references for all algorithms are provided.

Academic value but impractical for implementation 7. November 2006
Von toos - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Those of us who have been developing dedicated real-time applications need a text to teach less experienced engineers how to decompose real-time problems for effective implementation. This is not that text.

The book is well written. But the author is obsessed with scheduling algorithms and methods for estimating their execution times. This is essentially useless for two reasons: (1) the actual execution times are best controlled by effective application decomposition and (2) real-time applications are nearly always unfinished works; they usually under go numerous enhancements and revisions until they are no longer used at all. As any implementation is revised all the timing considerations must be reworked; we do not have time in the schedule nor money to afford this.

The author gives only scant consideration to determining when to poll for I/O or to use interrupt handlers and driver tasks; he offers no advice for making such determinations. The author does mention semaphores but does not discuss the numerous types of semaphores nor does he consider when/how one should use which kind of semaphore or what alternatives are available. There are similar deficiencies in the consideration of messaging, signals, events, timers, but only scheduling is considered. All of these constructs and their proper/improper use have profound influence on the efficiency of the algorithms implemented.

If you already have determined the "best" application decomposition and you already know how to use the various real-time methods to implement that decomposition and you will not add enhancements in the future and you have verified that your implementation will serve its purpose apart from timing considerations and you have lots of time in your schedule and plenty of money, why then you may investigate algorithm timing.

Still, it is a beautifully written book and a pleasure to read.

My Favorite for RTS 31. Oktober 2009
Von Dr. Gerd Doeben-Henisch - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
My point of view to use books about real-time systems is teaching: basic courses for bachelor and more advanced for master programs.The bachelor students have usually no knowledge about real-time systems, the programming skills are weak or moderate. In the master courses you have a variety between those who still have no knowledge (because master programs have students from different kinds of bachelor courses) and those who have done at least one basic course. Nearly all have had some industrial experience with software systems, but very rarely with real-time systems programming. With regard to the field of real-time systems you have also a very brought field of requirements: some companies are demanding for students which are skilled to program real pieces of hardware directly; others are using existing real-time operating systems which are the interface for programming. Still others have modeling tools which require the students to elaborate everything in formal models which then will be fed into simulators testing real hardware components. Fact is that the variety of concrete systems for real-time programming is enormous and to cope with only some of them is during a normal real-time system courses seldom manageable. Furthermore I have often experienced students which have done some programming of real hardware without a real understanding of the general concepts; the system worked but they were not able to argue about there system. Thus I developed through the last years the concept, that the students have to learn general concepts about real-time systems which they in parallel have to simulate by own programs. Besides this they can then either opt for more theory or for more concrete systems experience. With this background I have my opinions about some books about real-time systems.


A book which I think is good for an understanding of object-oriented programming but nearly not for real-time systems is Ellis, Objectifying Real-Time Systems,1994. Then there are some books written from practitioners of the field like
KLEIN et al., A Practitioner's Handbook for Real-Time Analysis, 1993; Liu, Real-Time Systems, 2000; Zöbel,Echtzeitsysteme. Grundlagen der Planung, 2008. They are very rich with details, but I am missing there a clear structure bringing forward the the theoretical core of real-time systems. Similar to these books but with some differences is Laplante, REAL-TIME SYSTEMS DESIGN AND ANALYSIS, 2004. The remarkable point of this book is that he explains largely and in detail the overall engineering process within which real-time systems development has to be placed. Besides this Laplante is touching most fields of real-time systems but often only at the 'surface'. More theoretical minded with a broad scope is KOPETZ, Real-Time Systems. Design Principles for Distributed Embedded Applications, 1997, 5th ed. 2001. But although it is written from a theoretical point of view it is written in plain text, without formulas, algorithms and proofs. Thus you can use it only as a worthful pointer to important topics. clearly theoretical minded stressing scheduling theory is COTTET et al., Scheduling in Real-Time Systems, 2002. This book is for me nearly like the book of Butazzo. Some others perhaps will give them there preference.


What the book of Butazzo clearly has is a very clear structure, a systematic account, presenting the main points, giving all references to important papers, giving at least the main lines of proofs, but nevertheless the chapters are short and not overloaded with confusing details.

This is not a book explaining the real programming of real systems. This would be a special topic which --in my view-- has to be separated from an introduction into real-time systems theory.
And, besides all the good points with regard to the exposition of the theoretical points of real-time systems the book of Butazzo is not yet a complete theory of real-time systems. Looking to the variety of concrete systems it seems at the first glance impossible to write a 'complete' theory of real-time systems, but I think, this is not impossible. But Butazzo (and eventually Cottet et al.) can be a good starting point for this.

Quality of book 19. Februar 2012
Von Sai R. Krishna - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I am sorry, the springer book binding is crappy. I have already lost the hard cover just by one drop from the desk, while similar drops from other publishers/makers have remained sturdier.

On the algorithms, referring earlier editions, there is a change in PCP reducing a one to critical section duration, for computing max blocking time[pg 232]. This is confusing without explaining the reasons for it.

great reference book though.
