Application-specific hints in reconfigurable grid scheduling algorithms

Author

Abstract
In this paper, we investigate the use of application-specific hints when scheduling jobs on a Computational Grid, as these jobs can expose widely differing characteristics regarding CPU and I/O requirements. Specifically, we consider hints that specify the relative importance of network and computational resources w.r.t. their influence on the associated application's performance. Using our ns-2 based Grid Simulator (NSGrid), we compare schedules that were produced by taking application-specific hints into account to schedules produced by applying the same strategy for all jobs. The results show that better schedules can be obtained when using these scheduling hints intelligently.
