Multimedia applications require operating systems that support time-constrained data types such as digital audio and video. These continuous media [1] demand timely service from the system, and time-sharing scheduling algorithms are not sufficient. Furthermore, simple fixed priority scheduling, used in many hard real-time systems, does not necessarily guarantee the successful execution of arbitrary collections of programs which may have conflicting timing requirements or which may overload the… CONTINUE READING
