Jamaica Real-Time Specification for Java class ProcessingGroupParameters

In a system that supports cost monitoring, the CPU time of a group of schedulable objects that are members of a processing group is limited to the amount specified by the cost parameter per period.

In a system that does not support cost monitoring, the information from the processing group parameters may be used by the feasibility analysis. This is particularly important if schedulable objects with aperiodic release parameters are involved since they would otherwise make feasibility analysis impossible.

Note that any changes to RelativeTime arguments of this object do not propagate to the schedulable object until the corresponding setter method of AperiodicParameters is called to notify this object about the change.

NOTE: the methods in this class are not synchronized. They cannot be used by several threads simultaneously without proper explicit synchronization.

Constructor Detail

ProcessingGroupParameters

public ProcessingGroupParameters(HighResolutionTime start,
                                 RelativeTime period,
                                 RelativeTime cost,
                                 RelativeTime deadline,
                                 AsyncEventHandler overrunHandler,
                                 AsyncEventHandler missHandler)
Constructor to create a new instance of ProcessingGroupParameters.

Parameters:
start - The start time of the first period described by this object. A start time of class RelativeTime will be relative to the time this constructor is called. A start time of class AbsoluteTime will result in a start at that time or immediately after the execution of this constructor, whichever comes later. If null, the default value will be new RelativeTime(0,0).
period - The time for which the cost budget is allocated. This argument must not be null or a time <=0.
cost - The CPU time budget for each period. This must not be null.
deadline - The deadline for the completion of all members of this group, relative to the release time of each period. If null, the default value is a new instance of RelativeTime(period).
overrunHandler - This handler will be invoked if the cost of of all schedulable objects in this group exceeds the cost parameter. If null, there will be no overrunHandler.
missHandler - This handler will be invoked if a schedulable object in this group still executes after the deadline has passed. If null, there will be no deadline miss handler.
Throws:
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException - if start is a negative RelativeTime, if the period is null or negative or zero, if cost is null or negative or deadline is negative or zero.
Method Detail

setIfFeasible

public boolean setIfFeasible(RelativeTime period,
                             RelativeTime cost,
                             RelativeTime deadline)
setIfFeasible performs a feasibility analysis using the new period, cost, and deadline parameters. If the resulting system remains feasible, the period, cost, and deadline will be set to the new values. This will change the corresponding attributes of all schedulable objects this is associated with.

Parameters:
period - The new time for which the cost budget is allocated. This argument must not be null or a time <=0.
cost - The new CPU time budget for each period. This must not be null.
deadline - The new deadline for the completion of all members of this group, relative to the release time of each period. If null, the default value is a new instance of RealtiveTime(period).
Returns:
true if the change was performed and the resulting system is feasible. false if the change would result in an infeasible system and was not performed.
Throws:
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException - if the period is null or negative or zero, if cost is null or negative or deadline is negative or zero.
