Performance Evaluation of Embedded System Using Scheduling Algorithms

Authors(2) :-M. Sreenath, Dr. P. A. Vijaya

The main aim is to share or allocate the processor time to all the tasks using scheduling algorithm in a system. The List and McNaughton's scheduling algorithms, minimize the maximum completion time of all tasks (Cmax). An ordered list of processes will be made and assign priorities to them by using List scheduling algorithm. McNaughton's scheduling algorithm only for independent tasks has to be scheduled on identical processors for the sake of schedule length minimization. Hu's algorithm is planned to schedule the tasks with in-tree precedence constraints, consider unit length tasks. In Hu's algorithm all processors should be of same type. These scheduling algorithms mainly for enhance the performance levels of the system by reducing the time delay. Thus, preferably use these algorithms in the areas of manufacturing & production, Transportation & distribution and Information-processing. List, and McNaughton's scheduling algorithms are used to reduce the difficulty in allocating the tasks to the processors. TORSCHE scheduling toolbox for MATLAB is used to schedule the tasks on processors. User can solve, scheduling problems with the help of MATLAB routines and functions by considering appropriate configurations like resources, task parameters and optimization criterion.
