Gang Scheduling with Memory Considerations

  title={Gang Scheduling with Memory Considerations},
  author={Anat Batat and Dror G. Feitelson},
A major problem with time slicing on parallel machines is memory pressure, as the resulting paging activity damages the synchronism among a job’s processes. An alternative is to impose admission controls, and only admit jobs that fit into the available memory. Despite suffering from delayed execution, this leads to better overall performanc e by preventing the harmful effects of paging and thrashing.
