We propose a new method for the control of a multiprogrammed virtual memory computer system. A mathematical model solved by decomposition permits us to justify that the method avoids thrashing. Simulation experiments are used to test the robustness of the predictions of the mathematical model when certain simplifying assumptions are relaxed and when a slightly simpler control technique based on the same principle is used. Comparisons are given with the case where an "optimal" control is used and with that with no control. We also provide a simulation evaluating the estimators used in an implementation of the control, as well as the responsiveness of the controlled system to transients in the workload.
