Quantum settings denoted by q, Operating System

Determining the time quantum for a job is a critical task.

Given the assumptions that the average switching time between processes is s, and the average amount of time an I/O bound process uses before generating an I/O request is t (t >> s). Discuss the effect of each of the following quantum settings denoted by q.

a) q = infinity
b) q is slightly greater than zero
c) q = s
d) s < q < t
e) q = t
f) q > t
