In this paper, the authors present an EDF-based algorithm, called Earliest Deadline Deferrable Portion (EDDP), for efficient scheduling of recurrent real-time tasks on multiprocessor systems. The design of EDDP is based on the portioned scheduling technique which classifies each task into a fixed task or a migratable task. A fixed task is scheduled on the dedicated processor without migrations. A migratable task is meanwhile permitted to migrate between the particular two processors. In order to curb the cost of task migrations, EDDP makes at most M-1 migratable tasks on M processors.
