Supercomputing systems must be able to reliably and efficiently complete their assigned workloads, even in the presence of failures. This paper proposes a system that allows the system and users to negotiate a mutually desirable risk strategy; in order to accomplish this, the system makes probabilistic guarantees on quality of service (QoS), of the form, "Job j can be completed by deadline d with probability p". In order to make such guarantees, the system uses event prediction (forecasting) in… CONTINUE READING
