Preemptive Task Scheduling for Distributed Systems ?

  title={Preemptive Task Scheduling for Distributed Systems ?},
  author={Andrei Radulescu and Arjan J. C. van Gemund},
Task scheduling in a preemptive runtime environment has pot ential advantages over the non-preemptive case such as better processor utilization and more flexibility when scheduling tasks. Furthermore, preemptive approa ches may need less runtime support (e.g. no task ordering required). In contrast to the non-preemptive case, preemptive task scheduling in a distributed system has not receive d much attention. In this paper we present a low-cost algorithm, called the Preemptive Task Scheduling… CONTINUE READING
