<p><b>Abstract</b>—In a distributed environment, tasks often have processing demands at multiple different sites. A distributed task is usually divided into several subtasks, each to be executed in order at some site. In a real-time system, an overall deadline is usually specified by an application designer indicating when a distributed task is to be finished. In this paper, we present and analyze techniques for automatically translating the overall deadline into deadlines for the individual subtasks.</p>
