Informatik, Technische Informatik, ICT Innovation (MSc): Mandatory course in module Operating System Project


In the recent years, the performance of computer systems has been increased mainly by an increasing specialization. As a result, the use of hardware accelerators such as GPUs, Xeon Phis, or FPGAs becomes more common. Today, these are mainly managed in the userspace rather than the operating system's kernel.


The aim of this year's project is to enable the Linux kernel to manage hardware accelerators and to take them into consideration for scheduling decisions. This shall be done using already existing results of the chair's research. The steps necessary for the realisation shall be examined and prototypically realized for one or more hardware accelerators.
