Fairness and classifications

Wierman, Adam


The growing trend in computer systems towards using scheduling policies that prioritize jobs with small service requirements has resulted in a new focus on the fairness of such policies. In particular, researchers have been interested in whether prioritizing small job sizes results in large jobs being treated "unfairly." However, fairness is an amorphous concept and thus difficult to define and study. This article provides a short survey of recent work in this area.
