Adaptively scheduling parallel loops in distributed shared-memory systems

Yong Yan, Canming Jin, Xiaodong Zhang
1997 IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems  
Using runtime information of load distributions and processor affinity, we propose an adaptive scheduling algorithm and its variations from different control mechanisms.  ...  The kernel application programs we used for performance evaluation were carefully selected for different classes of parallel loops.  ...  Variable s i is initially set to zero and is increased by one each time processor i finishes the execution of an iteration.  ...

An Improved Adaptive Space-Sharing Scheduling Policy for Non-dedicated Heterogeneous Cluster Systems

Amit Chhabra, Gurvinder Singh
2012 International Journal of Computer Applications Technology and Research  
Moreover existing adaptive policies use First-come-first-serve (FCFS) which is known to be sensitive of variance in service demand, as a job-selection policy for processor allocation.  ...  FCFS allocation of processors to jobs results in a situation where small jobs could be blocked by an earlier arrived large job.  ...  Moreover existing adaptive policies focus on using FCFS as a job selection algorithm to allocate processors to parallel jobs.  ...

An Efficient Adaptive Space-Sharing Policy for Non-dedicated Heterogeneous Cluster Systems

Amit Chhabra, Gurvinder Singh
2012 International Journal of Computer Applications  
This paper extends an existing non-workconserving adaptive space-sharing policy for dedicated heterogeneous systems to non-dedicated heterogeneous cluster systems.  ...  However community-owned clusters are naturally non-dedicated and tend to be heterogeneous over the time as cluster hardware is usually upgraded and new fast machines are also added to improve cluster performance  ...  Acknowledgements A shorter version of this paper appeared in International Journal of Computer Applications Technology and Research, sept.-oct., 2012.  ...

Integrated scheduling: the best of both worlds

Jon B. Weissman, Lakshman Rao Abburi, Darin England
2003 Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing  
It dynamically controls resource allocation among a set of competing applications, but unlike a traditional job scheduler, it can interact directly with an application during execution to optimize resource  ...  The results indicate that iScheduling can improve both waiting time and overall turnaround time substantially for these workload classes, outperforming standard policies such as backfilling and moldable  ...  For example, an application that has 2 resources allocated with its ideal resources = 4 will be much greater impacted if a resource was taken away than an application with 8 resources allocated with its  ...

2000 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
For instance, we show through several experiments that benefits in execution time range from 15% to 100%, depending on the policy used and the characteristics of the workload.  ...  Scheduling parallel applications on shared-memory multiprocessors is a difficult task that requires a lot of tuning from application programmers, as well as operating system developers and system managers  ...  Synchronization and Processor Preemptions Each time an application needs to do some operation which depends on the number of running processors, it uses the number of processors allocated pro-vided by  ...

Dynamic versus adaptive processor allocation policies for message passing parallel computers: An empirical comparison [chapter]

Jitendra Padhye, Lawrence Dowdy
1996 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
An adaptive policy may consider the state of the system at arrival time but it does not allow preemption of any of the running jobs.  ...  The workload model is based on matrix computation applications commonly found on large systems used for scienti c programming. Results are reported for single and multiclass cases.  ...  Both policies are implemented on a parallel computer with a message passing architecture. An open system model of the workload ow is implemented.  ...

2005 Proceedings of the 2005 symposium on Architecture for networking and communications systems - ANCS '05  
In particular, we explore the performance impact of (1) application analysis for partitioning, (2) network traffic characterization, (3) workload mapping, and (4) run-time adaptation.  ...  To make full use of the capabilities of network processors, it is imperative to provide the ability to dynamically adapt to changing traffic patterns and to provide run-time support in the form of a network  ...  Heavily used applications typically need to be replicated multiple times to provide sufficient performance (e.g., multiple parallel IP forwarding applications).  ...

E. Rosti, E. Smirni, G. Serazzi, L. W. Dowdy
1995 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Variability in the workload behavior including bursty arrivals, a high coe cient of variation in the workload execution time, unstable systems with processor failures are among the situations where non-work-conserving  ...  One policy class keeps a certain percentage of the processors free. The other policy class makes an allocation decision based on previously observed system behavior.  ...  However, multiprogramming complicates scheduling since an allocation policy is needed to determine the number of processors which should be allocated to each parallel program.  ...
