2010 2010 3rd Workshop on Many-Task Computing on Grids and Supercomputers  
Motivation ! Computational science is moving from single SPMD codes to loosely coupled MPMD applications ! MPMD viewed through a many-task computing (MTC) paradigm: ! Some degree of data and task coupling ! Varying parallelism and runtime between tasks ! Modest number of tasks, executed in a time stepped style ! Mismatch in runtime and parallelism, and the presence of dependencies lead to poor load balancing situations Nov. 15, 2010 2 MTAGS -SC10
