Title: Performance-based workload scheduling in multi-core architectures

Abstract: Systems and methods of managing workloads provide for detecting a workload for a system having a first processor core with a first performance indicator and a second processor core with a second performance indicator. The workload is scheduled based on the first and second performance indicator settings. In one embodiment, a performance feasibility index is calculated for each core based on the core's frequency setting and utilization and the workload is assigned to the core associated with the highest index.
