Analysis and simulation of scheduling techniques for real-time embedded multi-core architectures [article]

Sanjib Das, Universität Stuttgart, Universität Stuttgart
In this modern era of technological progress, multi-core processors have brought significant and consequential improvements in the available processing potential to the world of real-time embedded systems. These improvements impose a rapid increment of software complexity as well as processing demand placed on the underlying hardware. As a consequence, the need for efficient yet predictable multi-core scheduling techniques is on the rise. As part of this thesis, in-depth research of currently

The emphasis is on the degree of their usability on hard real-time systems, focusing on the scheduling techniques offering better processor affinity and the lower number of context switching. Also, an extensive research of currently available real-time test-beds as well as real-time operating systems is performed. Finally, a subset of the analyzed multi-core scheduling techniques comprising PSN-EDF, GSN-EDF, PD$^{2}$ and PD$^{2*}$ is simulated on the real-time test-bed LITMUS$^{RT}$.
