A Job Self-scheduling Policy for HPC Infrastructures
The number of distributed high performance computing architectures has increased exponentially these last years. Thus, systems composed by several computational resources provided by different Research centers and Universities have become very popular. Job scheduling policies have been adapted to these new scenarios in which several independent resources have to be managed. New policies have been designed to take into account issues like multi-cluster environments, heterogeneous systems and the geographical distribution of the resources. Several centralized scheduling solutions have been proposed in the literature for these environments, such as centralized schedulers, centralized queues and global controllers. These approaches use a unique scheduling entity responsible for scheduling all the jobs that are submitted by the users. In this paper we propose the usage of self-scheduling techniques for dispatching the jobs that are submitted to a set of distributed computational hosts that ...
