System Administrator

Users in level 1 are to enjoy better response time than users in level 2, who in turn will enjoy better response time than users in level 3. You are to design such a system so that all users will still get some progress, but with the indicated preferences in place.

2. Will a UNIX-style multi-feedback queue work? Why, or why not?
3. If none of the above works, could you design a scheduling scheme that meets the requirements?
