CPU shielding


CPU shielding

CPU shielding is a practice where on a multiprocessor system or on a CPU with multiple cores, real-time tasks can run on one CPU or core while non-real-time tasks run other other.

The operating system must be able to set a CPU affinity for both processes and interrupts.
