Database for Hard Real time Systems

Databases for real time systems are meant for the use of both hard and soft systems. Since hard real time systems needs strict timing constraints, conventional disk based databases are not suitable, but soft real time systems makes use of disk based systems through FCFS, Elevator or scan policy algorithm.

There should be some solution for Hard Real time systems with high performance and guaranteed response time constraints. MDARTS (Multiprocessor Database Architecture for Real Time System) is one such main memory database which uses VME based processors.

Features


  • This is for Hard Real time Systems

  • It is a main memory database (the entire database resides on the main memory)

  • Object oriented database (C++ elements)

  • Supports explicit declaration of real time constraints and semantic constraints within the application code.
    Constraints Specifications
    Access time ”write <=80usec ; read<=50usec” Staleness ”stale<=20msec” Persistence ”volatile”

  • The above are the constraints which can be included in the application code directly without the recompilation of the MDARTS library.

  • Supports direct, concurrent, shared memory data access.

Shared Memory Objects



  • This is suitable for NGC (Next generation Workstation/machine controller) for automated factories
  • The timing constraints of some real time applications are such that database transactions on the order of tens of microseconds may be needed
  • The above diagram shows the access to the data from the shared memory
  • The control task is periodic with hard deadline every msec. Each time the control task runs, it extracts the current sensor values from the database and computes new control signals for the actuators.
  • Data accessed extremely high speed must be stored in the physical shared memory as the virtual memory and disk based databases may generate the page faults which should not be generated for main memory.
  • Applications need not know whether the database access is local or remote. The database handler hides the information of being remote. Remote access achieved through Remote Procedure calls (RPC). There may be some communication delay when the data is accessed remotely.
  • The shared data manager (SDM) tracks the location and identity of the shared memory objects and also constructs its own database handle for each object to service remote requests.

Implementing a new system call in Kernel version 2.6.32

A system call is used by application or user programs to request service from the operating systems. Since the user programs does not have direct access to the kernel whereas the OS has the direct access. OS can access the hardware through system calls only. The following files has to be modified for implementing a system call /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/arch/x86/kernel/syscall_table_32.S /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/arch/x86/include/asm/unistd_32.h /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/include/linux/syscalls.h /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/Makefile New set of files to be created Create a new directory newcall/ inside the path “ /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/ ” Create new files Makefile, newcall.c and put them in the /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/newcall/ folder Create new user files (in any folder of Linux) to test the system call testnewcall.c, testnewcall.h (created in /home/pradeepkumar ) syscall_table_32.S Find the file /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/arch/x86/kernel/syscall_tab

How to Access MOODLE in Intranet and Internet

When Moodle is accessed either in Intranet or internet, there will not be any issue. But occasions when the MOODLE Site has to be accessed both in the intranet and in the Internet, here is a simple trick Server Used: IBM Blade Servers Operating system: Windows Server 2008 Moodle Version: 2.4 WAMP Server is used. Number of Users: 3000 (Students) + 200 (Faculty) Open the config.php from ~/moodle/config.php include these lines $CFG->wwwroot = 'http://'.$server_id.'/vitcc'; $CFG->dataroot  = 'C:\\wamp\\moodledata'; before the following line $CFG->directorypermissions = 07xx; Restart the WAMP Server and you can Check MOODLE Site both in Internet and Intranet. The above Image tells the intranet Link and the internet link can be opened outside the campus network
