Timing analysis of the PREEMPT RT Linux kernel

  title={Timing analysis of the PREEMPT RT Linux kernel},
  author={Daniel Bristot de Oliveira and R{\^o}mulo Silva de Oliveira},
  journal={Softw., Pract. Exper.},
In the theory of real-time scheduling, tasks are described by mathematical variables, which are used in analytical models in order to prove schedulability of the system. On real-time Linux, tasks are computer programs, and Linux developers try to lower the latencies caused by the Linux kernel, trying to achieve faster response for the highest-priority task. Although both seek temporal correctness, they use different abstractions, which end up separating these efforts in two different worlds… CONTINUE READING
