    Gang scheduling
    - It is a scheduling algorithm for parallel systems that schedules related threads or processes to run simultaneously on different processors.

    Rate-monotonic scheduling (RMS)
    - It is a scheduling algorithm which is used in real-time operating systems (RTOS) with a static-priority scheduling class.
    - The static priorities are assigned on the basis of the cycle duration of the job: the shorter the cycle duration is, the higher is the job's priority.

    Fair-share scheduling
    - It is a scheduling algorithm for computer operating systems in which the CPU usage is equally distributed among system users or groups, as opposed to equal distribution among processes.
