Abstract*
While there is currently great interest in the problem of
providing real-time services in general purpose operating
systems, the issue of real-time scheduling of internal oper-
ating system activities has received relatively little atten-
tion. Without such real-time scheduling, the system is
susceptible to conditions such as receive livelock -- a
situation in which an operating system spends all its time
processing arriving network packets, and application proc-
esses, even if scheduled with a real-time scheduler, are
starved. We investigate the problem of scheduling operat-
