Processor Allocation Policies for Message-Passing Parallel Computers

  title={Processor Allocation Policies for Message-Passing Parallel Computers},
  author={Cathy McCann and John Zahorjan},
When multiple jobs compete for processing resources on a parallel computer, the operating system kernel's processor allocation policy determines how many and which processors to allocate to each. In this paper we investigate the issues involved in constructing a processor allocation policy for large scale, message-passing parallel computers supporting a… CONTINUE READING
