Communication-Intensive Parallel Applications and Non-dedicated Clusters of Workstations
Time-sharing operating systems may delay application processing of incoming messages because other processes are scheduled when the messages arrive. In this paper, we present a simple adjustment to application polling behavior that reduces this effect when the parallel process competes with CPU-intensive sequential jobs. Our results showed that moderate improvement might be achieved. However, the effectiveness of the approach is highly application-dependent.
