Abstract

Motorola has several products implemented in poll loop event driven applications nameworks. These include the SIM3 communications simulator, the State of Florida DNC-10 controller for ASTRO Data, MCIL's DCC-I controller for repeated analog data, and Radio Ware's MagicPipe? Such poll loop appli- cations display a difficulty in distributing the CPU budget between computation, I/O polling, and I/O processing. This invention presents a way for users to tune the CPU budget without embedding special code in their applications.
