DelayLyzer: A Tool for Analyzing Delay Bounds in Industrial Ethernet Networks

  • Conference paper

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNPSE,volume 8376)

Abstract

In this paper, we present the DelayLyzer which is a tool for the calculation of delay bounds using network calculus. It respects the specifics of Industrial Ethernet by implementing not only STP and RSTP but also MRP as forwarding mechanism. The tool allows to specify failure scenarios and alternate forwarding protocols for which delay bounds can also be computed.
