Processor Scheduling in Shared Memory Multiprossors

  title={Processor Scheduling in Shared Memory Multiprossors},
  author={John Zahorjan and Cathy McCann},
Existing work indicates that the commonly used “single queue of runnable tasks” approach to scheduling shared memory multiprocessors can perform very poorly in a multiprogrammed parallel processing environment. A more promising approach is the class of “two-level schedulers” in which the operating system deals solely with allocating processors to jobs while the individual jobs themselves perform task dispatching on those processors. In this paper we compare two basic varieties of two-level… CONTINUE READING
