Performance perturbations are a natural phenomenon in volunteer computing systems. Scheduling parallel applications with precedence-constraints is emerging as a new challenge in these systems. In this paper, we propose two novel robust task scheduling heuristics, which identify best task-resource matches in terms of makespan and robustness. Our approach for both heuristics is based on a proactive reallocation (or schedule expansion) scheme enabling output schedules to tolerate a certain degree… CONTINUE READING
