 Chapter 7. Context Management

 In the shared and dedicated programming models, the POWER Service Layer (PSL) manages switching between the scheduled processes in the process element linked list. For these two programming models, each process is given a programmable amount of time to execute a job.

 In the AFU-directed programming model, the AFU supplies a process handle to the PSL for selection of the process state (that is, the process element) to use for the main storage request.
