In systems consisting of multiple clusters of processors, the processors can differ in the computing speed and number of processors both within and among the clusters. In this paper, the authors propose a scheduling technique that schedules moldable jobs in such a heterogeneous system. A unit called, Basic Processor Unit (BPU) is used to measure the computing speed of processors. The scheduling process integrates the techniques of job selection, site selection and processor selection into single algorithm with the objectives of improving mean response time and utilization in a heterogeneous multi-cluster system.
