Virtual machine environments and nonvirtual or real-time machine environments each have their own challenges with selecting an operating system configuration with the most effective process-scheduling algorithms.
Investigate the library and Internet for information about process-scheduling algorithms used in operating systems for virtual machine and nonvirtual machine environments.
- Select at least 2 operating system process-scheduling algorithms, and compare and contrast their effectiveness in a virtual machine environment and in a nonvirtual environment.
- Which scheduling algorithm is effective in both a virtual machine and non-virtual machine or real-time environment? Defend your answer.
Responses to Other Students: Respond to at least 2 of your fellow classmates with at least a 100-word reply about their Primary Task Response regarding items you found to be compelling and enlightening. To help you with your discussion, please consider the following questions:
