Performance Analysis of OS Scheduling for a Reconfigurable Computing Environment


The primary objective of this proposal is to minimize the battery drain and to maximize the compatibility of the device so that the complexity of the device is much more reduced to enhance the battery period considerably. In this paper we adopted a method for increasing the response time using a priority based algorithm along with Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) in Reconfigurable Computing System (RCS) to handle complex applications and to increase the efficiency and throughput of the system. A primary comparison was made with all existing algorithms namely First Come First Serve (FCFS), Round Robin, Shortest Job First (SJF) for a given set of processes by taking process delay as a core parameter. The result obtained from this analysis gave a clear picture that the objective can be achieved by decreasing the waiting time and by increasing the throughput. By achieving this task, multitasking between the applications or processes can be done frequently. By adopting these kind of scheduling algorithms with programmable gate array, there is a considerable improvement and performance of the device. Also, the life span of the device is increased which is considered as most important criteria for any users in computing environment.
