Process control and scheduling issues for multiprogrammed shared-memory multiprocessors

A. Tucker, A. Gupta
1989 ACM SIGOPS Operating Systems Review  
We then propose a way of controlling the number of runnable processes associated with an application dynamically, to ensure good performance.  ...  The optimal number of runnable processes for each application is determined by a centralized server, and applications dynamically suspend or resume processes in order to match that number.  ...  Acknowledgments We would like to thank David Cheriton, Hugh Lauer, Edward Lazowska, and Susan Owicki for their helpful comments on this paper and the work it describes.  ...

A Study of a Mechanism for Controlling Multiprogrammed Memory in an Interactive System

A. Brandwajn, J.-A. Hernandez
1981 IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering  
This paper deals with the following mechanism for controlling the multiprogramming set in a demand paging system: processes are dynamically divided into several categories according to the number of page  ...  Using a queueing network model of an interactive system with such a control mechanism we study the effectivenesss of the control considered, and, more particularly, its ability to partition the memory  ...  Hernandez, "A study of a mechanism for controlling multiprogrammed memory in an interactive systern," Ecole Nationale Superieure des Tel6communications, Paris, Res.

Multiprogram stabilization problem for the mathematical pendulum

Yakov A. Shakhov
2015 2015 International Conference "Stability and Control Processes" in Memory of V.I. Zubov (SCP)  
The equilibrium positions of the dynamic system are obtained as a solution of corresponding problem of multiprogram stabilization.  ...  In this paper, the model of mathematical pendulum is formulated as a non-linear dynamic system.  ...  Suppose that a set of controls u 1 (t), . . . , u N (t) and a set of program motions x 1 (t), . . . , x N (t) are constructed for the system (1).  ...

Multiprogram stabilization of equilibrium positions for a nonlinear dynamic system

Yakov Shakhov
2012 Proceedings of the 2012 Joint International Conference on Human-Centered Computer Environments - HCCE '12  
We solve the problem for nonlinear systems based on Zubov's approach (a multiprogram control as Hermite's interpolative polynomial) that provides constraining of multiprogram controls.  ...  In this paper, we consider the problem of multiprogram stable controls synthesis for dynamic systems.  ...  The problem of multiprogram stabilization for the system (1) consists in synthesis of a control u = u(x, t), which realizes the program motions set x 1 (t), . . . , x N (t) and guarantees their the asymptotic  ...
