Scheduling jobs that arrive over time [chapter]

Cynthia Phillips, Clifford Stein, Joel Wein
1995 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Many of the algorithms are based on interesting algorithmic and structural relationships between preemptive and nonpreemptive schedules and linear programming relaxations of both.  ...  A natural and basic problem in scheduling theory is to provide good average quality of service to a stream of jobs that arrive over time.  ...  Note that as long a s (3) and (4) are satisfied, the order in which the first m For unrelated machines the relationship between ZP and optimal preemptive schedules is more complex for two reasons.  ...

On the Soft Real-Time Optimality of Global EDF on Multiprocessors: From Identical to Uniform Heterogeneous

Kecheng Yang, James H. Anderson
2015 2015 IEEE 21st International Conference on Embedded and Real-Time Computing Systems and Applications  
In the non-preemptive case, it is shown that no work-conserving scheduler, including GEDF, can be SRT-optimal on uniform multiprocessors, even if the number of processors is limited to two. *  ...  In the preemptive case, it is shown that such an extension is possible for two-processor platforms but unlikely for platforms of more than two processors, unless fundamentally new proof techniques are  ...  On uniform multiprocessors, we prove that the preemptive GEDF scheduler is SRT-optimal on platforms of only two processors.  ...

Scheduling MapReduce Jobs and Data Shuffle on Unrelated Processors [article]

Dimitrios Fotakis, Ioannis Milis, Emmanouil Zampetakis, Georgios Zois
2014 arXiv   pre-print
Our results concern the minimization of the total weighted completion time of a set of MapReduce jobs on unrelated processors and improve substantially on the model proposed by Moseley et al.  ...  We propose constant approximation algorithms for generalizations of the Flexible Flow Shop (FFS) problem which form a realistic model for non-preemptive scheduling in MapReduce systems.  ...  Consider two optimal schedules σ and σ of Shuffle tasks and Reduce tasks on processors of the set P R ∪ P S and on processors of the set P R respectively.  ...
