Now-a- days processor speed and memory size are increasing with the advent of new technologies. Disk I/O performance has become mandatory factor concerning system performance. Seek time is a crucial factor in scheduling the disk requests. Increase in seek time degrade the system performance. Since the disk requests are linked in queues so there is a need of more efficient disk scheduling algorithms. The paper stores the disk requests in an array and forms a heap. Requests are served by performing the preorder traversal on the heap. Use of heap helps in dynamically handling the disk requests.
