Processors are being designed with asymmetric cores

  • Some with faster serial processing but more power consumption
  • Many smaller cores with slower processing, but more parallelism and lower power consumption

Scheduler can assign processes based on some profile to these cores

  • Intense serial computation goes on faster processor
  • Better parallelized or more memory intensive tasks put on slower cores

Needs to monitor processes to determine what sort of phase they are in: Serial or parallel

  • Tradeoff costs in switching versus savings gained
  • Several approaches, costs, difficulties in such profiling
