This article proves that the on—off renewal process with Weibull sojourn times satisfies the large deviation principle on a nonlinear scale. Unusually, its rate function is not convex. Apart from on a compact set, the rate function is infinite, which enables us to construct natural processes that satisfy the large deviation principle with nontrivial rate functions on more than one time scale.
