A common method of insuring the efficient use of resources in a computer system is to limit the degree of multiprogramming, i.e., the number of jobs allowed in the system at the same time. Many systems vary the multiprogramming level dynamically, white others fix the level a priori. This paper analyzes a transaction-oriented computer system with a fixed level of multiprogramming. We are primarily concerned with the performance of such systems as viewed by the customers submitting the… CONTINUE READING
