Abstract
As multicore platforms become ever larger, overhead-
related factors play a greater role in determining which
real-time scheduling algorithms are preferable. In this pa-
per, such factors are investigated through an empirical com-
parison of global, partitioned, and clustered EDF schedul-
ing algorithms on a 24-core Intel system. On this platform,
global EDF proved to be a non-viable choice for hard real-
time systems, while clusters of size six practically approxi-
mated global approaches. For soft real-time systems, clus-
tered EDF scheduling algorithms proved to be particularly
effective. This study suggests that future global scheduling
research should focus on small-to-medium multicore plat-
forms rather than large platforms.

In future multicore chip designs, per-chip core counts are
