The use of dynamic reconfiguration has been proposed to tolerate faults in large-scale parti-tionable parallel processing systems. If a processor develops a permanent fault during the execution of a task on a submachine A, three recovery options are migration of the task to another submachine, task migration to a subdivision of A, and redistribution of the(More)
If a processor develops a permanent fault during the execution of a task on a dynamically reconfigurable parallel machine, three recovery options are task migration to a fault-free subdivision, task migration to another submachine, and task redistribution. Quantitative models of these three reconfiguration schemes are analyzed, together with the cost of(More)
