This situation occurswhenever two or more processes aresimultaneouslyin the ready state. If only one CPU isavailable, a choice has to be made whichprocess to runnext. The part of the operating system thatmakes the choice is called the schedulerand thealgorithm it uses is called the scheduling2.5.1 Introduction to SchedulingBack in the old days of batch systems withinput in the form of card images on amagnetic tape,the scheduling algorithm was simple: justrun the next job on the tape. Withtimesharing systems,the scheduling algorithm became morecomplex because there were generallymultiple userswaiting for servicea batch job may be a request to runmultiple programs in succession, but forthis section,we will just assume it is a request to run asingle program.) Because CPU time is ascarceresource on these machines, a goodscheduler can make a big difference inperceivedperformance and user satisfaction.Consequently, a great deal of work hasgone into devisingclever and efficient scheduli
