Time Slice

Q4. Explain Time Slice.

Ans. Another possibility is to time slice among the queues.

A short interval of time allotted to each user or program in a multitasking or timesharing system. Time slices are typically in milliseconds.

The scheduler is run once every time slices to choose the next process to run. If the time slice is too short then the scheduler will consume too much processing time but if it is too long then processes may not be able to respond to external events quickly enough.
