When executing soft real­time tasks in a shared proces­
sor, it is important to properly allocate the computational
resources such that the quality of service requirements of
each task are satisfied. In this paper we propose Adap­
tive Reservations, based on applying a feedback scheme to
a reservation based scheduler. After providing a precise
mathematical model of the scheduler, we describe how this
model can be used for synthesising the controller by apply­
ing results from control theory. Finally, we show the effec­
tiveness of our method by simulation and by experiments
with an MPEG player running on a modified Linux kernel.
