HTCondor, a batch system characterized by its matchmaking mechanism, schedules job in FCFS way, so its performance is not ideal as expected. Backfilling is a technique to address the above problem. Most backfilling algorithms are based on CPU information and have large room for improvements with considering other resource information. The K-resource aware scheduling algorithm Backfill Balanced (BB) selects backfill job which can best balance the usage of all resources and achieve better… CONTINUE READING
