A Novel Hard-Soft Processor Affinity Scheduling for Multicore Architecture Using Multiagents
Multicore architecture otherwise called as SoC consists of large number of processors packed together on a single chip uses hyper threading technology. This increase in processor core brings new advancements in simultaneous and parallel computing. Apart from enormous performance enhancement, this multicore platform adds lot of challenges to the critical task execution on the processor cores, which is a crucial part from the operating system scheduling point of view. In this paper, the authors combine the AMAS theory of multiagent system with the affinity based processor scheduling and this will be best suited for critical task execution on multicore platforms.
