Survey on Different Method to Improve Performance of The Round Robin Scheduling Algorithm

Authors(2) :-Bhavin Fataniya, Manoj Patel

Round Robin (RR) scheduling algorithm is the widely used scheduling algorithm in multitasking and real time environment. Its performance highly depends on a Time Quantum, which is a predefined amount of time assigned by CPU to every task to be executed. If we chose the less time quantum then context switch is high and if we chose the high time quantum then its leads to First-Come-First-Serve (FCFS). So, the performance of the system totally depends upon the choice of optimal time quantum. In this paper I will survey a different method to improve performance of the round robin scheduling algorithm using dynamic time quantum and also compare different method to each other to see the performance of the algorithm with respect to turn around time, waiting time, number of context switch.
