Back to CPU Scheduler

* Description
* Installation
* ScreenShots
* Presentation slides
* Referred paper


CPU broker is not an independent component from DSRT scheduler. The broker acts as a front-end of DSRT-2 scheduler, processing brokerage services(Reservation, Allocation, Modification, and Release). In addition, the broker provides advance reservation services as well as immediate reservation services.

Details of the broker architecture is well described in a paper and slides.


To test CPU broker with DSRT scheduler, download broker-dsrt-2, which is a different version from the original DSRT-2 scheduler. However, installation steps are same as those of the original version, thus first read installation section from DSRT scheduler page.

In this broker-added version, a few modified API and CPU monitor is exported visibly to the clients so as to handle advance reservation.


CPU Broker can be monitored with the modified CpuMonitor.
