A Characterization of Task Allocation Problems for Dynamic Distributed Real-Time Systems

D. Gu, F. Drews, and L. Welch (USA)


Real-time systems, task allocation, distributed computing.


Execution times of dynamic distributed real-time systems are affected by variables that originate in external environ ments, and this leads to a new class of task allocation prob lems. A taxonomy was introduced to accommodate these external variables and help systematically understand and characterize the set of problems. Existing work can be clas sified with the taxonomy, and the classification also reveals many open problems.
