In multiprocessor systems, synchronization protocols can result in non-trivial (remote) blocking, which can cause timing impacts in real-time systems. To analyze the schedulability or the worst-case response time, it is essential to calculate a safe upper bound on the maximum remote blocking time due to the synchronization protocols. The derivation of the(More)
The Multiprocessor Priority Ceiling Protocol (MPCP) is a classic suspension-based real-time locking protocol for partitioned fixed-priority (P-FP) scheduling. However, existing blocking time analysis is pessimistic under the P-FP + MPCP scheduling, which negatively impacts the schedulability for real-time tasks. In this paper, we model each task as an(More)
