dynamic load-balancing on hierarchical platforms. In particular, we consider applications involving heavy communications on a distributed platform. The work-stealing algorithm introduced by Blumofe and Leiserson is a commonly used technique to balance load in a distributed environment but it suffers from poor performance with some communication-intensive applications. We describe here several variants of this algorithm found in the literature and in different grid middlewares like Satin and… CONTINUE READING
