Online Scheduling of Parallel Programs on Heterogeneous Systems with Applications to Cilk

  title={Online Scheduling of Parallel Programs on Heterogeneous Systems with Applications to Cilk},
  author={Michael A. Bender and Michael O. Rabin},
  journal={Theory of Computing Systems},
We study the problem of executing parallel programs, in particular Cilk programs, on a collection of processors of different speeds. We consider a model in which each processor maintains an estimate of its own speed, where communication between processors has a cost, and where all scheduling must be online. This problem has been considered previously in the fields of asynchronous parallel computing and scheduling theory. Our model is a bridge between the assumptions in these fields. We provide… CONTINUE READING
