Title: Energy-aware scheduling for heterogeneous multi-core architectures
Abstract: The current trend to move from homogeneous to heterogeneous multi-core (HetCMP) systems promises further performance and energy-efficiency benefits. A typical HetCMP system includes two distinct types of cores, such as high performance sophisticated (“large”) cores and simple low-power (“small”) cores. In those heterogeneous platforms, execution phases of application threads that are CPU-intensive can take best advantage of large cores, whereas I/O or memory intensive execution phases are best suited and assigned to small cores. However, it is crucial that the assignment of threads to cores satisfy both the computational and memory bandwidth constraints of the threads. In this talk we will present current work on scheduling and allocation of threads in HetCMP, with soft-real-time and no real-time constraints as well as open problems in the field.
