Dynamic Fractional Resource Scheduling (Other)

Conducted by

Mark Stillwell


The purpose of this experiment is to run simulation experiments in order to evaluate heuristics algorithms for a novel approach to sharing distributed computing platforms. They key feature of this approach is that it leverages existing virtual machine technology in order to share resources in a precise and controlled manner that optimizes both performance and fairness. We are considering a number of fast scheduling algorithms. We hope that our results will demonstrate that virtualization technology coupled with lightweight scheduling strategies enable dramatic improvements for scheduling workloads on distributed computing platforms.
