Load balancing on speed

  title={Load balancing on speed},
  author={Steven A. Hofmeyr and Costin Iancu and Filip Blagojevic},
To fully exploit multicore processors, applications are expected to provide a large degree of thread-level parallelism. While adequate for low core counts and their typical workloads, the current load balancing support in operating systems may not be able to achieve efficient hardware utilization for parallel workloads. Balancing run queue length globally ignores the needs of parallel applications where threads are required to make equal progress. In this paper we present a load balancing… CONTINUE READING
