In this paper we describe a two-level scheduling scheme for mixed parallel and sequential workloads on scalable parallel machines. The design of this scheduling system is based on two principles, that is, parallel programs should be scheduled in a coordinated manner so that they will not severely interfere with each other and the performance for parallel computing becomes predictable, and parallel programs may time-share resources with sequential programs so that the e ciency of processor… CONTINUE READING
