Summary of minimal-total-processing-time drum and disk scheduling disciplines

Samuel H. Fuller
1973 ACM SIGOPS Operating Systems Review  
This article investigates the application of minimaltotal-processing-time (MTPT) scheduling disciplines to rotating storage units when random arrival of requests is allowed.  ...  Fixed-head drum and moving-head disk storage units are considered and particular emphasis is placed on the relative merits of the MTPT scheduling discipline with respect to the shortest-latency-time-first  ...  Random Arrivals and Fixed-Head Drums Several assumptions are required to specify the models of drum and record behavior that are used in the simulations..  ...
