I have two threads of same priority lets say thread A and thread B, thread A is 
starving since thread B has got a for loop of size 100k. So, to avoid 
starvation I am processing 1000 iterations of for loop(that of thread B) in one 
batch and giving sleep of 1ms, but still thread A is starving. If I increase 
the batch size used in for loop from 1k to 10k then starvation of thread A is 
little less whereas it should be more as Im increasing processing time of 
thread B. I tried various combinations of sleeps and batches, but I couldnt 
solve the starvation of thread A.

Is the sleep right solution?

I will be grateful if someone could answer on this.
