Guest Editorial: From Uniprocessors to Multiprocessors: Advances in Real-Time Systems

Luis Almeida
2013 Real-time systems  
Real-time multiprocessor computing has been an active area of research for many years. For example, several real-time multiprocessor scheduling results are known for more than three decades.  ...  The real-time systems community in particular has been dedicating substantial attention to issues such as the definition of analysable task models that better adapt to parallel platforms, the scheduling  ...  three of these works present analytical techniques that extend from uniprocessors to multiprocessors, contributing to a consolidation of the analysis of real-time systems.  ...

Hierarchical cache/bus architecture for shared memory multiprocessors

A. W. Wilson
1987 Proceedings of the 14th annual international symposium on Computer architecture - ISCA '87  
Finally, an analytic model is used to explore systems too large to simulate (with available hardware).  ...  A new, large scale multiprocessor architecture is presented in this paper. The architecture consists of hierarchies of shared buses and caches.  ...  In order to rapidly explore a larger design space, analytic models of the hierarchical multiprocessor system were constructed.  ...

Structured evaluation of computer systems

G. Bockle, H. Hellwagner, R. Lepold, G. Sandweg, B. Schallenberger, R. Thudt, S. Wallstab
1996 Computer  
Evaluating how well a system will perform is difficult because it is seldom done systematically. An approach developed at Siemens makes decisions explicit and the process reproducible.  ...  This chart employs the analytical cache-modeling method. We must then adapt the load representation to the kind of model.  ...  WE HAVE USED THIS METHOD to evaluate mainly computer systems and communication systems design, including multiprocessor systems, a parallel file system, and an ATM network.  ...
