Scheduling TSS/360 for responsiveness


The performance of Release 4 of TSS/360 at the T. J. Watson Research Center was dramatically improved in the three-month period from November, 1969, through January, 1970. The improvements consist of an increase in system responsiveness by a substantial factor together with an increase in throughput. This was achieved by methodically adjusting the parameters of the TSS/360 Table-Driven Scheduler in accordance with the Principles of Balanced Core Time and Working Set Size.
