- For the general G/G/1 processor sharing (PS) system a sample path result for the sojourn times in a busy period is proved, which yields a relation between the sojourn times under PS and FCFS discipline. In particular, the result provides a formula for the mean sojourn time in G/D/1-PS in terms of the mean sojourn time in the corresponding G/D/1-FCFS, generalizing known results for GI/M/1 and M/GI/1. Extensions of the formula provide the basis for a two-moment approximation of the mean sojourn time in G/GI/1-PS in terms of a related G/D/1-FCFS.
