Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Real-Time Computing covers a broad spectrum of the intensively developing area of low-latency priority-driven system responsiveness under certain time constrains, as well as essential and decisive human-computer and/or machine-to-machine interactions constantly using incoming data streams. Research on real-time intelligent systems is of a multi-disciplinary nature, exploiting concepts from areas as diverse as signal processing technologies, computational intelligence, location systems, data processing, digital document processing, image recognition, and embedded system design. To accomplish the goals of its real-time performance, systematic analysis is carried out when systems are working.

Over the past few decades, real-time intelligent computing has radically transformed human lifestyles. In today's competitive and highly dynamic environment, analyzing data in real time is a must to understand, in detail, the insights from underlying behavioral patterns, as well as how systems are processing data, so to reason outputs and anticipate trends in intelligent computing, have become critical.

To leverage the full potential of this opportunity, to build complex real-time systems, intense research is required and this conference will serve as one such platform for ongoing research in real time intelligent systems.

The objective of this Special Issue is to compile and publish novel ideas relating to the areas of real-time systems, especially on new applications, data stream mining, and related big data analytic technology. We would like to solicit contributions from researchers from different disciplines, industrial practitioners, government agencies, and academia to discuss new ideas, research questions, recent results, and future challenges in real time intelligent systems. The best papers from the conference are solicited, which are theoretically grounded, methodologically sound, from academia and industry, which address a variety of aspects and innovations related to real-time computing systems.

Live migration of virtual machines is an important approach for dynamic resource scheduling in cloud environment. The hybrid-copy algorithm is an excellent algorithm that combines the pre-copy algorithm with the post-copy algorithm to remedy the defects of the pre-copy algorithm and the post-copy algorithm. Currently, the hybrid-copy algorithm only copies all memory pages once in advance. In a write-intensive workload, copy memory pages once may be enough. However, more iterative copy rounds can significantly reduce the page faults in a read-intensive workload. In this paper, we propose a new parameter to decide the appropriate time to stop the iterative copy phase based on real-time situation. We use a Markov model to forecast the memory access pattern. Based on the predicted results and the analysis of the actual situation, the memory page transfer order would be adjusted to reduce the invalid transfers. The novel hybrid-copy algorithm is implemented on the Xen platform. The experimental results demonstrate that our mechanism has good performance both on read-intensive workloads and write-intensive workloads. Full article
