Resource allocation for heterogeneous computing systems : performance criteria, robustness measures, optimization heuristics, and properties
MetadataShow full item record
Heterogeneous computing (HC) is the coordinated use of different types of machines, networks, and interfaces to maximize the combined performance and/or cost effectiveness of the system. The application environments studied in this research are: a weather data processing system, a massive multi-player on-line gaming system, and a distributed satellite image processing system. Each one of these application environments was simulated on different computation platforms. Contributions for each environment: (1) mathematical model of environment, (2) defined a performance criterion, (3) defined ...
