Advance reservations are important to guarantee the quality of services of grid jobs. However, the influence of AR from the grid on local parallel schedulers is not clearly known. EASY backfill and conservative backfill are two important parallel scheduling algorithms. This paper examined their procedures to support AR, evaluated their performances impacted from AR by using discrete event simulations with real trace from the parallel workload archive. Results show that as AR request increases… CONTINUE READING
