  author={Emilia Rosti and Evgenia Smirni and Giuseppe Serazzi and Lawrence W. Dowdy},
In multiprocessor systems, a reasonable goal of the sched-uler is to keep all processors as busy as possible. One technique for doing this is to allocate all available processors to the jobs waiting for service. Techniques which allocate all available processors are known as work-conserving policies. In this paper, non-work-conserving policies are examined. These policies keep some number of processors idle (i.e., un-allocated) even when there are parallel jobs that are waiting for service… CONTINUE READING
