In this paper we present the utilization bound for Earliest Deadline First (EDF) scheduling on homogeneous mul-tiprocessor systems with partitioning strategies. Assuming that tasks are pre-emptively scheduled on each processor according to the EDF algorithm, and allocated according to the First Fit (FF) heuristic, we prove that the worst-case achievable(More)
In this paper we extend Liu & Layland's utilization bound for fixed priority scheduling on uniprocessors to homogeneous multiprocessor systems under a partitioning strategy. Assuming that tasks are pre-emptively scheduled on each processor according to fixed priorities assigned by the Rate-Monotonic policy, and allocated to processors by the First Fit(More)
Since 2009, the incidence of human leishmaniosis in the SW of the Madrid region has been unusually high. Although dogs are the main reservoir for this disease, a role played by dogs in this outbreak has been ruled out and investigators are now considering other hosts (eg. cats, rabbits, hares) as possible alternative reservoirs. This study was designed to(More)
Web services are becoming an essential technology for the development of current distributed applications. Therefore, the organizations must be aware of the possibilities and limitations of the web services and their enabling technologies related to interoperability, performance, security, etc. Benchmarking techniques can provide very useful insights about(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common sustained cardiac arrhythmia and a growing healthcare burden worldwide. It is often asymptomatic and may appear as episodes of very short duration; hence, the development of methods for its automatic detection is a challenging requirement to achieve early diagnosis and treatment(More)
