In this paper we consider the problem of scheduling online jobs on kappa identical machines. Technically, our system is composed of kappa identical machines and each job is defined by a triplet r = (l,r,p) where l denotes its left border, its right border and p its length. When a job is revealed, it can be rejected or scheduled on one of the kappa machines In this last case, it can suppress already scheduled jobs. The goal is to maximize the size of the schedule (i.e. the number of jobs scheduled and not (later) suppressed). We propose an algorithm called OLUW.It is (4min (beta ,leftlfloor {Log_2 (gamma )} rightrfloor + 1)) competitive, where beta is the number of different job lengths appearing in the on-line input sequence and gamma is the ratio between the length of the longest job and the length of the shortest job in the sequence. To the best of our knowledge, OLUW is the first on-line algorithm maximizing the size with guarantees on the competitive ratio for the timeconstrained scheduling problem on kappa machines.
