Robust resource allocations in parallel computing systems : model and heuristics
MetadataShow full item record
This is an overview of the material to be discussed in the invited keynote presentation by H. J. Siegel; it summarizes our research in [2, 16, and 17]. The resources in parallel computer systems (including heterogeneous clusters) should be allocated to the computational applications in a way that maximizes some system performance measure. However, allocation decisions and associated performance prediction are often based on estimated values of application and system parameters. The actual values of these parameters may differ from the estimates; for example, the estimates may represent only ...
