This paper presents the design and evaluation of a decentralized load sharing algorithm for networks of workstations, RADIO. With respect to general distributed computing environments, networks of workstations have some peculiarities. First, the global computing power is most of the time much underutilized. Second, users of workstations need occasionally a peek of computing power. Third, workstations are often diskless, so that running a process on one workstation or another does not add file… CONTINUE READING
