Title: METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR ADJUSTING THE MAXIMUM DURATION OF TIME-CRITICAL FUNCTIONS
Abstract:
An improved method and system for achieving target function failure rates for time-critical functions. Communication systems often utilize distributed functions occurring in two or more nodes. Various embodiments of the invention enable such system to achieve target function failure rates by adjusting the maximum allowable duration for time-critical functions. Adjustments to either a function starting time or a maximum allowable function duration may be used to achieve target failure rates. Various embodiments measure a real-time function failure rate. Other embodiments simply lengthen or compress the maximum allowable function duration based on failure or success of the function. The function duration or the function duration statistics do not need to be known.
