A computer system is said to be balanced whenever the set of running programs presents a total demand, for both processors and memory, that matches the available equipment. The equipment configuration, here defined as the proper relative capacities of processor and memory resources in a balanced computer system, may be determined analytically.
Balanced computer systems, demand paging systems, equipment configuration, memory allocation, process scheduling, resource allocation models.
