One of the more challenging problems to handle in a university computing center is how to schedule the use of scarce computing resources fairly among the various elements of the customer community. The researcher community on our campus does a good job of monitoring for possible "holes" in our resource allocation schemes that might be exploited to the benefit of some ... and the detriment of others. This paper discusses the MVS scheduling problem we encountered and describes the approach taken to solve it.
scite is a Brooklyn-based organization that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students and researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
