Impact of Non-Stationary Workload on Resource Reservation Based Slack Reclamation

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In open real-time systems with a non-stationary workload, tasks can be dynamically mapped to servers. If a server-based, slack reclamation scheduler is used, each task reserves a fraction of the bandwidth based on its resource estimation. However, the slack time scheduler makes no guarantee to a task beyond its processor capacity reserve, i.e., the scheduler cannot guarantee that a soft real-time task will receive a higher quality of service than is specified by its resource reservation. Nevertheless users often assume that a desired Quality of Service (QoS) can be achieved using an optimistic resource reservation.
