Performance of PVM with the MOSIX Preemptive Process Migration Scheme

  title={Performance of PVM with the MOSIX Preemptive Process Migration Scheme},
  author={Amnon Barak and Avner Braverman and Ilia Gilderman and Oren Laden},
With the increased interest in network of workstations for parallel and high performance computing it is necessary to reexamine the use of process migration algorithms, to improve the overall utilization of the system, to achieve high performance and to allow flexible use of idle workstations. Currently, almost all programming environments for parallel systems do not use process migration for task assignments. Instead, a static process assignment is used, with sub optimal performance… CONTINUE READING
