Scheduling parallel applications in distributed networks

  title={Scheduling parallel applications in distributed networks},
  author={Jon B. Weissman and Xin Zhao},

Prophet is a run-time scheduling system designed to support the efficient execution of parallel applications written in the Mentat programming language (Grimshaw, 1993). Prior results demonstrated that SPMD applications could be scheduled automatically in an Ethernet-based local-area workstation network with good performance (Weissman and Grimshaw, 1994 and 1995). This paper describes our recent efforts to extend Prophet along several dimensions: improved overhead control, greater resource… CONTINUE READING
