We have developed an in-house Scheduler which is based on Rate-monotonic scheduling. We have 6 tasks (5 actual tasks and 1 idle task). Our scheduler works on 1msec timer interrupt. Before sending it out in real world, We want to test it thoroughly.
What are the best and/or commonly used strategies for testing a Scheduler?
One thing we performed was added functions which require very high processing time in each tasks and checked whether scheduler still switches on given deadline or not. But I feel this is not enough to gain the confidence.
