Abstract: Semi-Markov Stochastic Petri Nets (SM-SPNs) are a high-level formalism for defining semi-Markov processes. We present an extended Continuous Stochastic Logic (eCSL) which provides an expressive way to articulate performance queries at the SM-SPN model level. eCSL supports queries involving steady-state, transient and passage time measures. We demonstrate this by formulating and answering eCSL queries on an SM-SPN model of a distributed voting system with up to 10 to the power of 7 states.
