COLLEGE THESIS

An Extension to the Linux O(1) Scheduler: Addressing Response Time of Fresh Processes

One of the important goals of the Linux kernel process scheduler is support for real-time applications. However, slow response time is a result of the current fashion in which the scheduler manages the processes. This is unacceptable for real-time systems, which require fast response time or reaction time.

An algorithm was formulated to help improve the Linux scheduler by extending it with a Fresh Buffer Queue. Simulations of both the algorithms were evaluated and results and comparisons point out that a major decrease in response time for new processes, which means faster response time and could possibly mean improvement on real-time application support, was obtained by the new algorithm at a minimal expense on other evaluation criteria.

Used Visual C# .NET to simulate differences between the old and new algorithms.
