The paper presents the results of an investigation, by means of simulation, of a variety of multiprocessor scheduling algorithms. The algorithms investigated included two that used job priority levels, and two that involved the specification of job deadlines. Thus changing relative job urgency with the passage of time would be reflected by periodic rescheduling. The evaluation of all algorithms was with with respect to their ability to meet deadlines.
