Suppose the processing load of a computing system consists of 70% CPU activity and 30% disk activity.?

"Suppose the processing load of a computing system consists of 70% CPU activity and 30% disk activity. Your customers are complaining that the system is slow. After research, you discover that you can upgrade your disks and make them 3.5 times faster than they currently are. You also discovered you can upgrade your CPU to make it 1.4 times faster than it currently is. You only have time to implement one upgrade. Which one do you choose and why?"

Where do I start/how do I begin solving this problem?

    Same question was asked earlier. Switch out the operating system instead.

    Look at the proportion of the processing loads, 70% and 30% and the amount of speed gain by the processor and disk. You can then multiply the processing load via the speed gain to work out the absolute value of either choice.
