The Entitlement Based Scheduler (EBS) is a modification of the Linux O(1) CPU scheduler that introduces entitlement based scheduling for SCHED_NORMAL tasks in Linux 2.6 kernels. The design features of the O(1) scheduler that address the issues of scalability and efficiency are retained. Entitlement based sharing means that each task has its own variable entitlement to CPU resources, and the scheduler allocates more CPU time to tasks with greater entitlement. The priority of each task is continually adjusted to achieve this aim.
