Abstract : This paper describes the current SDC Q-32 Time-Sharing System scheduling algorithm, presents some simulation results and observations which led to its design and implementation, and evaluates the algorithm on the basis of empirical system data. General observations on scheduling are also presented in order to provide insight into the problem and to assist system designers in the development of optimal scheduling algorithms for future time-shared systems.
