Fault injection (FI) has been shown to be an effective approach to assess- ing the dependability of software systems. To determine the impact of faults injected during FI, a given oracle is needed. This oracle can take a variety of forms, however prominent oracles include (i) specifications, (ii) error detection mechanisms and (iii) golden runs. Focusing on golden runs, in this paper we show that there are classes of software which a golden run based approach can not be used to analyse. Specifically we demonstrate that a golden run based approach can not be used when analysing systems which employ a main control loop with an irregular period. Further, we show how a simple model, which has been refined using FI, can be employed as an oracle in the analysis of such a system.
