I have a question regarding how unix handles priorities and task
Let's suppose I only have three priority levels and only 6 processes
Priority A has process 1 in it.
Priority B has 2-5
Priority C has process 6 in it.
Now, the processor gives time in 1 sec increments to all priorities.
If Process 1 is asleep and the processor hits B will ALL of the B level
process get a turn at the CPU or only one process?
If only one process at Does the CPU have to hit A every time, wasiting CPU
time and then getting to the next B in the cue?
if a only need a tiny bit of 1 sec does B get the rest?
I ask this question because our AIX has tons (90%) of processes in the 60
cue, few in any of the others and I wonder if it "log-jams" and wastes to
much time and if changing priorities would help.
