Fault-Tolerant Dynamic Task Scheduling Based on Dataflow Graphs [chapter]

Erik Maehle, Franz-J. Markus
1998 Fault-Tolerant Parallel and Distributed Systems  
Fault tolerance is based on dynamic redundancy comprising checkpointing, self-diagnosis and rollback recovery. The schedule is computed dynamically during the runtime of the process system.  ...  The algorithm is described in detail for the 1-fault case and some performance measurements on a multi-transputer system are given.  ...  For workstationclusters the environment usually runs on one node of the virtual multicomputer. Supported operating systems are Solaris, Linux and Windows (95, NT).  ...

A Framework for Opportunistic Cluster Computing Using JavaSpaces1) [chapter]

Jyoti Batheja, Manish Parashar
2001 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The fundamental idea is to provide large amounts of processing capacity over extended periods of time by harnessing the idle and available resources on the network in an "opportunistic" manner.  ...  Heterogeneous networked clusters are being increasingly used as platforms for resourceintensive parallel and distributed applications.  ...  The segment size for each strip is kept to be 20 leading to 25 sub tasks for each iteration. Each page request spawns off a new using a cluster of Windows NT workstations.  ...
