- SCHED_DEADLINE can be used to schedule real-time tasks guaranteeing that

- must be scheduled by setting:
+ Finally, it is important to understand the relationship between the
+ SCHED_DEADLINE scheduling parameters described in Section 2 (runtime,
+ deadline and period) and the real-time task parameters (WCET, D, P)
+ described in this section. Note that the tasks' temporal constraints are

+ SCHED_DEADLINE schedules the tasks according to scheduling deadlines (see
+ Section 2).
+ If an admission test is used to guarantee that the scheduling deadlines
+ are respected, then SCHED_DEADLINE can be used to schedule real-time tasks
+ guaranteeing that all the jobs' deadlines of a task are respected.

- runtime >= WCET
- deadline = D
