Non-Priority Multi-Programming Systems Under Heavy Demand Conditions From a Customer's Point of View

Lookup NU author(s): Emeritus Professor Isi Mitrani



A simple cyclic-queue model of multiprogramming system with a fixed number of tasks is analysed in its steady state. Expressions for queue-size distribution, average rate of job-completions, average stay-in-the-system time are derived. A measure of system efficiency alternative to processor utilisation is suggested and optimal values for the degree of multiprogramming are given for various values of the parameters.
