Towards Energy-aware Multiprocessor Hierarchical Scheduling of Real-time Systems
2013 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)Text
Multiprocessor platforms are becoming increasingly more popular. Providing more computation capacity on a single hardware platform, multiprocessors make it possible to integrate previously federated real-time systems onto a single platform. Multiprocessor hierarchical scheduling techniques provide the ground for composing real-time components, while guaranteeing the timing correctness of the composed system. A considerable deal of compositional real-time systems are embedded systems that operate on battery power. In such systems, reducing the power consumption is of paramount importance to increase the system lifetime. In this paper, we present our idea on reducing the energy consumption when performing hierarchical scheduling on multiprocessors. We formulate the problem, present the model and sketch the outline of the solution. Finally, we present a number of challenges which will be addressed in our work.
