The performance of job scheduling policies strongly depends on the properties of the incoming jobs. If the job characteristics often change, the scheduling policy should follow these changes. For this p- pose the dynP job scheduler family has been developed. The idea is to dynamically switch the scheduling policy during runtime. In a basic v- sion the policy switching is controlled by two parameters. The basic concept of theself-tuning dynP scheduler is to compute virtual schedules for each policy in every scheduling step. That policy is chosen which generates the 'best' schedule. The performance of the self-tuning dynP scheduler no longer depends on a adequate setting of the input parameters.
