Abstract

The authors investigate the problem of cycle-stealing and its impact on the scheduling of tasks in processors with data input/output. They identify the parameters and policies that govern cycle-stealing and analyze its effects on real-time systems with hard deadlines. They study different policies to resolve memory across conflicts between the processor and I/O devices and compare their effectiveness in improving task schedulability. They investigate various memory interleaving schemes and the level of interleaving required to adequately counter the effects of cycle-stealing.
