Benchmarking of a Real-Time System that utilises a booster

  title={Benchmarking of a Real-Time System that utilises a booster},
  author={Johan Furun{\"a}s},
Application speedups can be achieved by speeding up the hardware, e.g. by utilising an Operating System co-processor. The paper present results from a comparison of executing benchmark programs on a system with and without a coprocessor, but which otherwise are identical. The observed speedup is mostly due to the fact that there is no need for clock tick administration, in the system with co-processor, and that the booster scheduler is faster than the software based one. In general the system… CONTINUE READING
