The Complexity of Optimal Job Co-Scheduling on Chip Multiprocessors and Heuristics-Based Solutions

In Chip Multi-Processors (CMP) architecture, it is common that multiple cores share some on-chip cache. The sharing may cause cache thrashing and contention among co-running jobs. Job co-scheduling is an approach to tackling the problem by assigning jobs to cores appropriately so that the contention and consequent performance degradations are minimized. Job co-scheduling includes two tasks: the estimation of co-run performance, and the determination of suitable co-schedules. Most existing studies in job co-scheduling have concentrated on the first task but relies on simple techniques (e.g., trying different schedules) for the second.
