Submission + - Third release of Linux SCHED_DEADLINE available (lkml.org)

c1oud writes: The third version of the SCHED_DEADLINE patchset has been released to LKML: http://lkml.org/lkml/2010/10/29/67.

SCHED_DEADLINE is a real-time scheduling class for Linux with bandwidth isolation (AKA "resource reservation") capabilities based on the EDF algorithm.

This version adds support for global/clustered multiprocessor scheduling through dynamic task migrations. This means that tasks can migrate among (a subset of) CPUs when this is needed, by means of pushes & pulls. Moreover, (c)group based task admission logic and bandwidth management has been removed, in favour of a per root_domain tasks bandwidth accounting mechanism.

The code is being jointly developed by ReTiS Lab (http://retis.sssup.it) and Evidence S.r.l (http://www.evidence.eu.com) in the context of the ACTORS EU-funded project (http://www.actors-project.eu).

The development is taking place at http://gitorious.org/sched_deadline/pages/Home.
