This paper presents frame based fair multiprocessor scheduler (FBFMS) which provides accurate real-time proportional fair scheduling for a set of dynamic tasks on a symmetric multiprocessor environment with O(1) scheduling overhead. FBFMS meets these seemingly contradictory goals by applying the benefits of virtual time round-robin scheduling mechanism along with a frame based scheduling approach. Simulation results show that the algorithm provides 2.5 to 26 times speedup (over O(lg n) complexity schedulers) with distortion in fairness less than 1% in most cases, and less than 15% in the worst case.
