Adaptive Resource Management Framework for Mobile Terminals—The ACTORS Approach

Vanessa Romero Segovia, Karl-Erik Årzén, Stefan Schorr, Raphael Guerra, Gerhard Fohler, Johan Eker, Harald Gustafsson


A resource management framework for media applications modelled as dataflow streams is described. The framework is aimed at multi-core applications and the main resource managed is the CPU time. The management is implemented using reservation-based scheduling in combination with optimization and feedback. Experiences of applying the framework to media applications are reported. A simulation model of the framework is also presented.


Resource management, real-time systems, multimedia, dataflow programming, feedback control.
