Fair Share Scheduling Algorithm

Q1. Explain Fair Share Scheduling.

Ans. Solaris 9 introduced two new classes of scheduling:

  1. Fixed Priority
  2. Fair Share

Threads in fixed priority class have the same priority range as in time sharing system.

Fair Share Scheduling class uses CPU share instead of priorities to make scheduling decisions. CPU share indicates right to available CPU resources and are allocated to a set of processes (known as project).
