Partial ordering

allows time varying

policies

- Use a parameterized policy setthat is (nearly) dense in SMART,e.g. iRj + S
- Search (i,j) space for policy thatoptimizes secondary objectives,e.g. fairness and predictability

so it is typically studied asymptotically

EXAMPLES

If OrigSize(a) = x and

ε(x) < RemSize(b)

then a has priority over b

How do you get back SMART?

ε(x) = x

How can you characterize job

size estimates?

ε(x) = (1+σ) x

You can also capture policies with

a finite number of priority levels...

SCHEDULING CLASSIFICATIONS

How can we use classifications

to bridge the gap between theory

and practice?

going beyond mean response time

DIVERSE METRICS

Can a policy be both fair and

efficient?

...What is “fair” anyway?

[Perf Eval 02] [Sigmetrics 03]

[Sigmetrics 05]

How predictable are response

times under common policies?

[Perf Eval 02] [Sigmetrics 03, 05]

How does having multiple servers

change the effect of scheduling?

[QUESTA 05] [Perf Eval 06]

How do the effects of scheduling

differ in open/closed systems?

...Is the “real world” open or closed?

[NSDI 06]

How predictable are response

times under common policies?

...Is the mean a good measure

of the distribution?

[Sigmetrics 05] [QUESTA 06]

How do different scheduling

techniques / heuristics react to

customer abandonment?
