Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 143)


Several analytically solvable queueing models of multiprogramming with different jobs and various scheduling disciplines are investigated. It is shown that the analysis of these models supports the optimality of the already proposed CPU scheduling discipline which assigns higher processing priority to a more I/O bound job. Furthermore, the effects of some endogenous scheduling disciplines such as preemptive-resume last-come-first-served are compared with that of this discipline using some queueing models.
