Current production resource management and scheduling systems often use some mechanism to guarantee fair sharing of computational resources among different users of the system. For example, the user who so far consumed small amount of CPU time gets higher priority and vice versa. However, different users may have highly heterogeneous demands concerning system resources, including CPUs, RAM, HDD storage capacity or, e.g., GPU cores. Therefore, it may not be fair to prioritize them only with respect to the consumed CPU time.
