My end users wants to run batch processes concurrently on a Linux box. Their impression is that running multiple of them at same time will reduce turnaround time. These processes do fair amount of heavy lifting.
My take on this is that running concurrently will simply compete for resources and cause contention for resources. Some testing seems to prove my hypothsesis.
I found similar thread below on SF.
Can anybody point to authoritative resources which prove both sides of theory ?
What kind of testing can be done to validate this hypothesis ?
