Abstract:


Background: Patents suggest that efficient hybrid information scheduling algorithm is critical to achieve high performance for heterogeneous multi-core processors. Because the commonly used list scheduling algorithm obtains the approximate optimal solution, and the genetic algorithm is easy to converge to the local optimal solution and the convergence rate is slow.

Methods: To solve the above two problems, the thesis proposes a hybrid algorithm integrating list scheduling and genetic algorithm. Firstly, in the task priority calculation phase of the list scheduling algorithm, the total cost of the current task node to the exit node and the differences of its execution cost on different processor cores are taken into account when constructing the task scheduling list, then the task insertion method is used in the task allocation phase, thus obtaining a better scheduling sequence. Secondly, the pre-acquired scheduling sequence is added to the initial population of the genetic algorithm, and then a dynamic selection strategy based on fitness value is adopted in the phase of evolution. Finally, the cross and mutation probability in the genetic algorithm is improved to avoid premature phenomenon.

Results: With a series of simulation experiments, the proposed algorithm is proved to have a faster convergence rate and a higher optimal solution quality.

Conclusion: The experimental results show that the ICLGA has the highest quality of the optimal solution than CPOP and GA, and the convergence rate of ICLGA is faster than that of GA.
