—In recent years multi-core processors have seen broad adoption in application domains ranging from embedded systems through general-purpose computing to large-scale data centres. Simulation technology for multi-core systems, however, lags behind and does not provide the simulation speed required to effectively support design space exploration and parallel(More)
—Mobile computing devices such as smartphones and tablets have become tightly integrated with many people's life, both at work and at home. Users spend large amounts of time interacting with their mobile device and demand an excellent user experience in terms of responsiveness, whilst simultaneously expecting a long battery life between charging cycles.(More)
This document contains notes about how the Linux kernel handles process scheduling. They cover the general scheduler skeleton, scheduling classes, the completely fair scheduling (CFS) algorithm, soft-real-time scheduling and load balancing for both real time and CFS. The current Linux kernel is a multi-tasking kernel. Therefore, more than one process are(More)
