SCHED_DEADLINE

SCHED_DEADLINE is an implementation of a new scheduling class for the Linux kernel. It implements the real-time scheduling algorithm called Earliest Deadline First (EDF). A key feature is that it ensures "temporal isolation", which means that the temporal behavior of each task (i.e., its ability to meet its deadlines) is not affected by the behavior of any other task in the system. In other words, even if a task misbehaves, it is not able to exploit larger execution times than the amount it has been allocated. Each task is characterized by a "budget" and a "period" equal to its deadline. At any instant of time, the system schedules the task having earliest deadline.
