Visible to the public Go-RealTime: Knowledge and Control of Time in High Level Programming Language


General purpose operating systems (OS) are concurrent and multithread, and the primary goal of thread scheduler is to enforce fairness among all threads. This design is unsuitable for Real-Time (RT) systems, because tasks have soft or hard deadline of finishing time. Concurrency breaks timing of RT applications because users never know when their program is actually running. Explicitly allocation of processor resource to programs (threads) is thus necessary for timing-aware applications.
