First post here, glad I found this exchange. I am in my Operating Systems course at university learning process scheduling. In my homework assignment we have to fill out a simulated scheduling chart along with the corresponding Gant chart. The arrival time of the first process is at time 0, and it's service time is 5 seconds. The second process doesn't arrive until time 7. The time quantum is 6. How do I fill out the gant chart if nothing is in the queue?
your first process will take time only upto 5 seconds as its service time is only upto 5 seconds and then you have to keep blank space between 5-7 and then your next process arriving at 7 would be processed,i think.
