Abstract
Processor speed and memory capacity are increasing sev­
eral times faster than disk speed. This disparity suggests that
disk I/O performance will become an important bottleneck.
Methods are needed for using disks more efficiently. Past
analysis of disk scheduling algorithms has largely been exper­
imental and little attempt has been made to develop algorithms
