BeOS Internals


Is there a way for a processor to be allocated to a single, realtime task? There was some discussion on the BeDevTalk mailing list indicating that perhaps a single processor could be set aside for this purpose.

There is currently no way to explictly set aside one processor for the execution of a privileged task. You can get the realtime processing you're looking for by setting a high enough thread class and priority -- so high that it effectively consumes a CPU -- but you can't be specific about it. This is not a technical limitation, but a decision made during the design of the BeOS.
