Download Job Scheduling Strategies for Parallel Processing: IPPS '97 by Dror G. Feitelson PDF

By Dror G. Feitelson

This ebook constitutes the strictly refereed post-workshop lawsuits of the 1997 IPPS Workshop on activity Scheduling ideas for Parallel Processing held in Geneva, Switzerland, in April 1997, as a satelite assembly of the IEEE/CS overseas Parallel Processing Symposium.
The 12 revised complete papers awarded have been rigorously reviewed and revised for inclusion within the e-book. additionally incorporated is a close creation surveying the cutting-edge within the quarter. one of the issues coated are processor allocation, parallel scheduling, vastly parallel processing, shared-memory architectures, gang scheduling, etc.

SDL '97: Time for Testing

As Cavalli and Sarma astutely remarked within the advent to this quantity, it truly is fairly outstanding that SDL '97 can have the 1st player more youthful than SDL itself. SDL '97 presents the chance to mirror the direction SDL has taken and why it's been profitable over 20 years the place different languages addressing an identical industry have failed.

Network-on-Chip Architectures: A Holistic Design Exploration

The continued relief of function sizes into the nanoscale regime has resulted in dramatic raises in transistor densities. Integration at those degrees has highlighted the criticality of the on-chip interconnects. Network-on-Chip (NoC) architectures are seen as a potential approach to burgeoning worldwide wiring delays in many-core chips, and feature lately crystallized right into a major examine area.

Software and system development using virtual platforms : full-system simulation with Wind River Simics

Digital systems are discovering common use in either pre- and post-silicon software program and procedure improvement. They decrease time to industry, enhance procedure caliber, make improvement extra effective, and allow really concurrent hardware/software layout and bring-up. digital systems elevate productiveness with unheard of inspection, configuration, and injection services.

The other is incorporation of memory requirements into workload models used to drive simulations or as inputs to analytical evaluations. For example, a model of how memory requirements change with the degree of parallelism facilitates the evaluation of scheduling policies for different machine configurations. 1 T i m e Slicing a n d M e m o r y P r e s s u r e Previous work about incorporating memory considerations into scheduling algorithms has been quite limited, and included ideas such as the following: - In systems that use space slicing, place a lower bound on partition size so that enough memory will be available [16,17,13].

It also means that when users actually need to provide low memory estimates in order to run (as is the case 88 on shared nodes) they sometimes make very accurate estimates, and sometimes they lie... 5 C o r r e l a t i o n of M e m o r y Usage a n d R u n t i m e Finally, we investigate the possible correlation between memory usage and runtime. The scatter plot on the left of Fig. 8 shows all pairs of runtime and total memory usage. The most striking features of this plot are the well-defined band of memory usage values, the horizontal stripes that indicate preferred memory usage values, and the sharp limits on runtime at the right-end side (probably due to NQS queue limits).
