Computation of Buffer Capacities for Throughput Constrained and Data Dependent Inter-Task Communication
Streaming applications are often implemented as task graphs. Currently, techniques exist to derive buffer capacities that guarantee satisfaction of a throughput constraint for task graphs in which the inter-task communication is data-independent, i.e. the amount of data produced and consumed is independent of the data values in the processed stream. This paper presents a technique to compute buffer capacities that satisfy a throughput constraint for task graphs with data dependent inter-task communication, given that the task graph is a chain.
