Scheduling Tasks Sharing Files on Heterogeneous Clusters

  title={Scheduling Tasks Sharing Files on Heterogeneous Clusters},
  author={Arnaud Giersch and Yves Robert and Fr{\'e}d{\'e}ric Vivien},
This paper is devoted to scheduling a large collection of ind ependent tasks onto heterogeneous clusters. The tasks depend upon (i n ut) files which initially reside on a master processor. A given file may well be sh ared by several tasks. The role of the master is to distribute the files to the p rocessors, so that they can execute the tasks. The objective for the master is to select which file to send to which slave, and in which order, so as to minimize the t otal execution time. The… CONTINUE READING
