Towards the Implementation and Evaluation of Semi-Partitioned Multi-Core Scheduling

Yi Zhang, Nan Guan & Wang Yi
Recent theoretical studies have shown that partitioning-based scheduling has better real-time performance than other scheduling paradigms like global scheduling on multi-cores. Especially, a class of partitioning-based scheduling algorithms (called semi-partitioned scheduling), which allow to split a small number of tasks among different cores, offer very high resource utilization, and appear to be a promising solution for scheduling real-time systems on multi-cores. The major concern about the semi-partitioned scheduling is that due to the task splitting,...
