    One of the os/vs2 Release 2 design objectives is to provide each installation with control over the responsiveness and turnaround times of its batch jobs and TSO commands, without requiring installation personnel to write their own scheduling algorithm. Installation personnel specify their response and turnaround objectives in terms of the rates at which processing resources are to be provided to ... View full abstract»

    Experience with the algorithm to date indicates it to be a worthwhile step toward optimization for a virtual storage environment. The algorithm is clearly not the ultimate solution to program packing, yet it does provide an automated and effective means to this end. As such, it has proved useful and far preferable to manual or intuitive techniques for program placement. View full abstract»
