Fair Share , Fair Share Scheduling, Resource Allocation
Resource management is a vital task of all operating systems. It is the responsibility of operating system to ensure that all programs requesting resources are getting resources in a timely manner. Various recourse allocation strategies are there which provide guidance for operating systems to make resource allocation decisions. This article describes about the resource management using a fare share scheduler. The fair share scheduler ensures that resources are allocated to programs in an efficient manner and this ensures fairness in resource allocation.
