Trace-Based Simulations of Processor Co-Allocation Policies in Multiclusters

  title={Trace-Based Simulations of Processor Co-Allocation Policies in Multiclusters},
  author={Anca I. D. Bucur and Dick H. J. Epema},
In systems consisting of multiple clusters of processors which employ space sharing for scheduling jobs, such as our Distributed ASCI 1 Supercomputer (DAS), co-allocation, i.e., the simultaneous allocation of processors to single jobs in multiple clusters, may be required. In this paper we study the performance of several scheduling policies for co-allocating unordered requests in multiclusters with a workload derived from the DAS. We find that beside the policy, limiting the total job size… CONTINUE READING
