If each time slice in a multiprogramming system is 50 milliseconds and each context switch requires at most a microsecond, how many processes can the machine service in a single second?
Assume that a RISC processor executes each instruction in 2 microseconds and that an I/O device can only wait for 1 millisecond before its interrupt is handled. What is the maximum number of instructions that may be performed when interruptions are disabled?
Let us suppose, for the sake of simplicity, that each instruction on a RISC processor is processed in 2 microseconds and that an I/O device can only wait for an interrupt to be handled for a maximum of 1 millisecond before it is serviced. When interruptions are turned off, the number of instructions that may be performed is limited.
