4) attempts to combine the best features of the two earlier attempts by keeping the end-to-end response time small without making the timing conditions too rigid. Here τ2 is sporadic but τ3 is periodic. e. 6) The advantages of the third implementation increase with the number of tasks in the transaction. For example, if there are ten tasks it is still only the first and last tasks that need to be periodic. In general, tasks may be associated with more than one transaction and the precedence relations between tasks can include branching and joining.

This has made it possible to schedule tasks without regard to any dependencies between them: any task with some incomplete computation is ready and it can be scheduled whenever it is ready and the processor is free. This type of model can be used for simple data-logging programs but most real-time programs have a more complex structure. If tasks can communicate with each other, using shared memory or by message passing, scheduling becomes far more complicated as it is not only time-driven. A task can receive a message only after the message has been sent, so a receiving task τ2 will not be ready to be scheduled until the corresponding sending task τ1 has been scheduled, even if τ1 is of lower priority than τ2 .

A periodic task is released by a timer event and a sporadic task by an event originating either from another task or from the environment of the system (typically as an interrupt). In Chapter 2, we considered events to be unbuffered and to be lost if they were not processed in time. Here we assume invocation events to be persistent: a periodic task that overruns into its next release period can continue directly with its next invocation. 1. COMPUTATIONAL MODEL 33 Periodic and sporadic tasks have a minimal inter-arrival time T.
