Decay-usage scheduling in multiprocessors
D. H. J. Epema
Pages: 367-415
DOI: 10.1145/292523.292535
Decay-usage scheduling is a priority-aging time-sharing scheduling policy capable of dealing with a workload of both interactive and batch jobs by decreasing the priority of a job when it acquires CPU time, and by increasing its priority when it...
