—This paper presents the implementation of a Hierarchical Scheduling Framework (HSF) on an open source real-time operating system (FreeRTOS) to support the temporal isolation between a number of applications, on a single processor. The goal is to achieve predictable integration and reusability of independently developed components or applications. We(More)
In this paper we describe the problem of achieving composability of independently developed real-time subsystems to be executed on a multi-core platform, and we provide a solution to tackle it. We evaluate existing work for achieving real-time predictability on multi-cores and illustrate their lack with respect to composability. To address composability we(More)
5G networks will be a key enabler for the Internet of Things by providing a platform to connect a massive number of devices with heterogeneous sets of network quality requirements. In this environment, 5G network operators will have to solve the complex challenge of managing network services for diverse customer sectors (such as automotive, health or(More)
The Multi-Resource Server (MRS) technique has been proposed to enable predictable execution of memory intensive real-time applications on COTS multi-core platforms. It uses resource reservation approaches in the context of CPU-bandwidth and memory-bus bandwidth reservations to bound the interference between the applications running on the same core as well(More)
In this paper we present an implementation and demonstration of the Multi-Resource Server (MRS) which enables predictable execution of real-time applications on multi-core platforms. The MRS provides temporal isolation both between tasks running on the same core, as well as, between tasks running on different cores. The latter could, without MRS, interfere(More)
—This paper presents extensions to the previous implementation of two-level Hierarchical Scheduling Framework (HSF) for FreeRTOS. The results presented here allow the use of HSF for FreeRTOS in hard-real time applications, with the possibility to include legacy applications and components not explicitly developed for hard real-time or the HSF. Specifically,(More)
—We present the concept of a virtual node as means to achieve predictable integration of software components with real-time requirements. The virtual node is based on the technology using the hierarchical scheduling framework to achieve temporal isolation between components (or sets of components). The temporal isolation means that all components deployed(More)
We present a novel implementation of the pairwise DNA sequence alignment problem other than the Dynamic programming solution presented by Smith Waterman Algorithm. The proposed implementation uses CUDA; the parallel computing platform and programming model invented by NVIDIA. The main idea of the proposed implementation is assigning different nucleotide(More)
In this paper we present our ongoing work on implementing the multi-resource server technology in the Linux operating system running on multi-core architectures. The multi-resource server is used to control the access to both CPU and memory bandwidth resources such that the execution of real-time tasks become predictable. We are targeting Legacy(More)
Memory contention is one of the largest sources of inter-core interference in statically partitioned multicore systems, and the contention reduces the overall performance of applications and causes unpredictable execution-times. A first step in achieving predictable execution is to accurately measure the amount of consumed memory bandwidth for each(More)
