Modeling Machine Availability in Enterprise and Wide-Area Distributed Computing Environments
tl;dr
We propose a new approach to modeling machine availability based on either the Weibull family of distributions or hyperexponentials depending on the intended use. Expand

QBETS: queue bounds estimation from time series
tl;dr
We use batch-queuing systems to manage processor allocation on space-sharing parallel computers, and we show how this can be a drag on productivity. Expand

Predicting bounds on queuing delay for batch-scheduled parallel machines
tl;dr
We explore a new method for providing end-users with predictions for the bounds on the queuing delay individual jobs will experience. Expand

Automatic methods for predicting machine availability in desktop Grid and peer-to-peer systems
tl;dr
We describe one parametric model fitting technique and two nonparametric prediction techniques for predicting machine availability from monitoring data in distributed computing environments. Expand

Fault-aware scheduling for Bag-of-Tasks applications on Desktop Grids
tl;dr
We present a set of fault-aware scheduling policies that, rather than just tolerating faults as done by traditional fault-tolerant schedulers, exploit the information concerning resource availability to improve application performance. Expand

Grid Resource Allocation and Control Using Computational Economies
In this chapter, we describe the use of economic principles as the basis for Grid resource allocation policies and mechanisms. A computational economy in which users “buy” resources from their ownersExpand
