Scheduling

Q1. What is Scheduling?

Ans. When a computer is multiprogrammed it frequently has multiple processes or threads competing for the CPU at the same time. This situation occurs whenever two or more of them are simultaneously in the ready state. If only one CPU is available, a choice has to be made which process to run next. The part of the operating system that makes the choice is called the scheduler, and the algorithm it uses is called the scheduling algorithm.
