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. 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(More)
We consider non-preemptive scheduling of MapReduce jobs with multiple tasks in the practical scenario where each job requires several map-reduce rounds. We seek to minimize the average weighted completion time and consider scheduling on identical and unrelated parallel processors. For identical processors, we present LP-based O(1)-approximation algorithms.(More)
