Feasibility Analysis of Sporadic Real-Time Multiprocessor Task Systems
We give the first algorithm for testing the feasibility of a system of sporadic real-time tasks on a set of identical processors, solving an open problem in the area of multiprocessor real-time scheduling [S. Baruah and K. Pruhs, Journal of Scheduling, 2009]. We also investigate the related notion of schedulability and a notion that we call online feasibility. Finally, we show that discrete-time schedules are as powerful as continuous-time schedules, which answers another open question in the above mentioned survey.
