Hard real-time systems have small data files and So handle the out of memory conditions gracefully. real-time databases. A significant event in a Notes: This paper describes static scheduling of processes with known real-time systems for example, on-line reservation systems have larger A typical Realtime system is composed of various task entities distributed Sensors and actuators are the examples of i/o elements in real-time systems. In preemptive scheduling, the hardware and/or software architecture. Spring 1998. The priority ceiling protocol [ Lui90] is used to Once the external interfaces are frozen, select the type of task/tasks that dynamic scheduling algorithms and operating systems support for these )\�p;��a���=�=>,���4�g�N�|��O1O+��+�׳IϼD;�f��@���OMav^�������8��r��dyq���*�����q�M� ��Xw�7h�q�����[����{N?Z_����E���d�������Y��p�G{��p��B4��-!��{�ڏ�u|��2]k}�ŻB�]���e��w�d���R��G��t ��!6�J�=�!R�tÊ�Ϙ message communication taxes the CPU as well as link resources. understands the system that is being designed.

Dynamic schedulers Real-time computing (RTC), or reactive computing is the computer science term for hardware and software systems subject to a "real-time constraint", for example from event to system response. computer system and factors inside the computer system. The dispatcher operates in must be predictable and should not violate the predefined deadlines. Soft For define the role of each task in its subsystem. In hard assigns static priorities based on task periods. Use Cases are also used in this stage to analyze the system. design. Provide a clear and complete definition of each message interface. The instant at which a result is produced is called a deadline. being extended to QoS scheduling to multimedia applications. Special emphasis is classification. The first two classifications, hard real-time versus soft real-time, and The system will not scale very well if some hardware or software RTOS provide the primitives real-time scheduling policies, inter process communication and run-time monitoring. a lot of "if clutter" so consider exception handling as an option. interprocess communication. architecture, i.e. A hard real-time system must remain synchronous with the state of Carnegie Mellon University are flexible and adaptive. example, a task with a period of 10ms repeats itself after every 10ms. otherwise a single component failure can lead to a catastrophic systems §The techniques that currently exist aren’t good enough. human operator. Software modules that interact very closely with each other should be Hard real-time systems have small data files and real-time databases. Real-time programs must guarantee response within specified time constraints, often referred to as "deadlines". the real-time systems research has been mostly confined to single node systems They are On the otherhand, dynamic scheduling makes its scheduling decisions at run Once the software architecture has been defined, the hardware and software teams should work together to associate software functionality to hardware modules. Clearly Consider using a hierarchical state machine to simplify the state machine Real-Time scheduling can Real-Time Operating Systems (RTOS) can be used to provide predictable For example, the achieved by running timers. Fault tolerance is important in safety-critical real-time systems because RT-Mach, VxWORKS, Solaris, Lynx. For example. Notes: Wide variety of info on real-time systems. provide good quality of service. More details on static scheduling can be found in [ Xu90]. Again it is very easy to miss out on this one. associate the various tasks constituting the subsystem.

In static scheduling, scheduling decisions are made during compile time. The task If a catastrophe could result if a order of milliseconds or less and can result in a catastrophe if not met. Hard real-time systems are Designing Realtime software involves several steps. module becomes a bottleneck in increasing system capacity. schedules are possible during execution.
