Transparent Real-Time Task Scheduling on
Temporal Resource Partitions
Abstract— Transparent Real-Time Task Scheduling on
Temporal Resource Partitions. The Hierarchical Real-Time Scheduling < Final Year Projects 2016 > technique helps improve overall resource utilization in real-time embedded systems. With HiRTS, a computation resource is divided into a group of temporal resource partitions, each of which accommodates multiple real-time tasks. Besides the computation resource partitioning problem, real-time task scheduling on resource partitions is also a major problem of HiRTS. The existing scheduling techniques for dedicated resources, like schedulability tests and utilization bounds, are unable to work without changes on temporal resource partitions in most cases. We show how to achieve maximal transparency for task scheduling on Regular Partitions, a type of resource partition introduced by the Regularity-based Resource Partition (RRP) Model. We show that several classes of real-time scheduling problems on a regular partition can be transformed into equivalent problems on a dedicated single resource, such that comprehensive single-resource scheduling techniques provide optimal solutions. Furthermore, this transformation method could be applied to different types of real-time tasks such as periodic tasks, sporadic tasks and aperiodic tasks.
