The emergence of asymmetric multicore processors(AMPs) has elevated the problem of thread scheduling in such systems. The computing needs of a thread often vary during its execution (phases) and hence, reassigning threads to cores(thread swapping) upon detection of such a change, can significantly improve the AMP's power efficiency. Even though identifying a change in the resource requirements of a workload is straightforward, determining the thread reassignment is a challenge. Traditional… CONTINUE READING
