Abhijit A. Rajguru, S. S. Apte . A Performance Analysis of Task Scheduling Algorithms using Qualitative Parameters. International Journal of Computer Applications. 74, 19 ( July 2013), 33-38. DOI=10.5120/13004-0308
A CPU is the very important part of the computer system; hence it must be utilized efficiently. When the demand for computing power increases, then scheduling problem becomes very important. The problem of task scheduling and load balancing are most important and challenging area of research in computer engineering. Task scheduling can be defined as allocating processes to processor so that total execution time will be minimized, utilization of processors will be optimized. Load balancing is the process of improving the performance of system through a redistribution of load among processor. In this paper, the performance analysis of various task scheduling algorithms based on different qualitative parameters is presented. The analysis indicates that task scheduling algorithms have some advantages as well as disadvantages. The main purpose of this paper is to help in design of new scheduling algorithms in future by studying existing task scheduling algorithms.
