Download Now Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper investigates scheduling strategies for divisible jobs/loads originating from multiple sites in hierarchical networks with heterogeneous processors and communication channels. In contrast, most previous work in the Divisible Load scheduling Theory (DLT) literature mainly addressed scheduling problems with loads originating from a single processor. This is one of the first works that address scheduling multiple loads from multiple sites in the DLT paradigm. In addition, scheduling multi-site jobs is common in Grids and other general distributed systems for resource sharing and coordination.
