In virtual machine environments, it is difficult to allocate CPU resource in a timely manner when lots of domains are in BOOST priority. In this paper, we present a virtual machine scheduling scheme based on VCPU shaping and efficiently deals with multi BOOST problem. We evaluate our prototype in terms of latency over diverse workloads. Our experiment result shows that the proposed realtime priority scheme effectively allocates CPU resources for low latency guest domain over varying workloads.
