Parallel job scheduling has gained increasing recognition in recent years as a distinct area of study. However , there is concern about the divergence of theory and practice in the eld. We review theoretical research in this area, and recommendations based on recent results. This is contrasted with a proposal for standard interfaces among the components of(More)
We designed a new network architecture, the P-Mesh, which combhres the scalabili_, and fault resilience of a torus with the performance of a switch. We compare tire scalability, performance, and cost of the hub, switch, torus, tree, and P-Mesh architectures. Tire latter three are capable of scaling to thousands of nodes, however, the torus has severe(More)
We investigate the feasibility of running parallel applications on heterogeneous clusters. The motivation for doing so is twofold. First, it is practical to be able to pull together existing machines to run a job that is too big for any one of them, especially if such jobs are run rarely. Second, in the event of an emergency, where a very large problem must(More)
The adoption of building information modeling (BIM) is increasing in the construction industry. However, quantity surveyors are slow in adoption compared to other professions due to lack of awareness of the BIM’s potential in their profession. It is still unclear on how BIM application can enhance quantity surveyors’ work performance and project(More)
