DESH: Overhead Reduction Algorithms for Deferrable Scheduling
Source: Springer Science+Business Media
Although the deferrable scheduling algorithm for fixed priority transactions (DS-FP) has been shown to be a very effective approach for minimizing realtime update transaction workload, it suffers from its on-line scheduling overhead. In this work, the authors propose two extensions of DS-FP to minimize the on-line scheduling overhead. The proposed algorithms produce a hyperperiod from DS-FP so that the schedule generated by repeating the hyperperiod infinitely satisfies the temporal validity constraint of the real-time data. The first algorithm, named DEferrable Scheduling with Hyperperiod by Schedule Construction (DESH-SC), searches the DS-FP schedule for a hyperperiod.
