Understanding the Real-Time Executive Daemon (rtxd) for Linux Whitepaper

The real-time executive daemon, or the “rtxd”, is a set of Linux processes and Linux process APIs providing a high-resolution computing time reference, a shared memory data management architecture, and a comprehensive set of computing services for real-time and accelerated industrial computing applications.  The rtxd transforms the standard Linux computing environment into a microsecond resolution, highly instrumented, distributed computing, client-server platform.

This whitepaper introduces the real-time executive daemon and includes the following sections:

  • What is the rtxd?
  • Who uses the rtxd?
  • The rtx daemon – Linux Real-Time Executive
  • Real-Time Computing and Data Handling Frameworks
  • Real-Time Assemblies
  • Framework Client-Server Architecture
  • Performance-Optimized Real-Time Computing – Method to the rtxd Madness
  • Data Acquisition Services
  • Why a “Real-Time” Linux Server?
  • Network, Databus, and Serial Communications
  • Compatible Modeling Tools
  • Real-Time Linux Comes of Age

This whitepaper is 9 pages long and free to download!
