In recent years a number of load sharing (LS) mechanisms have been proposed or implemented to fully utilize system resources. We have designed and implemented a decentralized real-time LS mechanism based on the Condor package 17, 18]. Two important features of our design are use of region-change broadcasts in the information policy to provide each workstation with timely state information at minimum communication cost, and use of preferred lists in the location policy to avoid task collisions… CONTINUE READING
