    We study an M/M/1 queueing system under the shortest remaining processing time (SRPT) policy. We show that the average sojourn time varies as T((µ(1-¿) ln(e/(1-¿)))-1), where ¿ is the system load. Thus, SRPT o2ers a T(ln(e/(1-¿))) factor improvement over policies that ignore knowledge of job sizes while scheduling.
