Bus Contention: A loss of performance that can arise when two or more devices – for example computer PROCESSORS or disk controllers - try to transfer data simultaneously over the same BUS. For example hesitation may be introduced into a video or audio playback whenever the disk is being accessed. Contention is ameliorated by some kind of ARBITRATION scheme that regulates bus usage in a fair and orderly way, ensuring that all the contending devices are granted access for a reasonable duration and within a reasonable time ..It can be avoided altogether by changing the hardware architecture so as to provide separate buses for each device.
