Efficient multicore scheduling of dataflow process networks

Abstract : Although multi-core processors are now available everywhere, few applications are able to truly exploit their multiprocessing capabilities. Dataflow programming attempts to solve this problem by expressing explicit parallelism within an application. In this paper, we describe two scheduling strategies for executing a dataflow program on a single-core processor. We also describe an extension of these strategies on multi-core architectures using distributed schedulers and lock-free communications. We show the efficiency of these scheduling strategies on MPEG-4 Simple Profile and MPEG-4 Advanced Video Coding decoders.
