Scheduling Schemes for Handling Overload
4.1 Scheduling Techniques in Overload Conditions
This chapter presents several techniques to solve the problem of scheduling real-time tasks in overload conditions. In such situations, the computation time of the task set exceeds the time available on the processor and then deadlines can be missed. Even when applications and the real-time systems have been properly designed, lateness can occur for different reasons, such as missing a task activation signal due to a fault of a device, or the extension of the computation time of some tasks due to concurrent use of shared resources....
