Questions and Answers

What is the main objective of CPU scheduling in multiprogrammed operating systems?

To have some process running at all times, to maximize CPU utilization

When a process switches from the running state to the waiting state

What is the primary criterion for comparing CPU-scheduling algorithms?

CPU utilization: keep the CPU as busy as possible

Study Notes

CPU Scheduling Objectives

  • The main objective of CPU scheduling in multiprogrammed operating systems is to allocate the CPU time to multiple processes efficiently.

Preemptive Scheduling

  • In preemptive scheduling, a process switches from the running state to the ready state when it is interrupted by the operating system or when it requests I/O operations.

Comparing CPU-Scheduling Algorithms

  • The primary criterion for comparing CPU-scheduling algorithms is CPU utilization.

Nonpreemptive Scheduling

  • In nonpreemptive scheduling, a process releases the CPU when it terminates or requests I/O operations.

Throughput in CPU Scheduling

  • Throughput measures the number of processes completed per unit time in terms of CPU scheduling.
