The PREEMPT_RT kernel patches have gotten a lot of attention lately. It provides a Linux kernel that can be part of a Real-Time environment. But just adding a Real-Time kernel to your system does not make the entire system able to meet Real-Time demands. Every aspect of your system must be Real-Time aware. This starts with the hardware and firmware, followed by the kernel, the libraries used, and finally the applications must have special constraints. Even the way each of these levels interact must be considered to guarantee that deadlines are met. This talk with discuss each of these layers and give the audience an idea of what must be thought through to have a successful Real-Time environment.
