Fairness and Utilization in Allocating Resources with Uncertain Demand [article]

Kate Donahue, Jon Kleinberg
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Resource allocation problems are a fundamental domain in which to evaluate the fairness properties of algorithms. The trade-offs between fairness and utilization have a long history in this domain.  ...  A recent line of work has considered fairness questions for resource allocation when the demands for the resource are distributed across multiple groups and drawn from probability distributions.  ...  As proved in Appendix B, any α-fair allocation v i with i i < R can be increased to an α-fair allocation v ′ i with i ′ i = R and no decrease in utilization.  ...

Evaluating the impact of inaccurate information in utility-based scheduling

Alvin AuYoung, Amin Vahdat, Alex C. Snoeren
2009 Proceedings of the Conference on High Performance Computing Networking, Storage and Analysis - SC '09
