Dynamic resource management heuristics for minimizing makespan while maintaining an acceptable level of robustness in an uncertain environment
Heterogeneous parallel and distributed computing systems may operate in an environment where certain system performance features degrade due to unpredictable circumstances. Robustness can be defined as the degree to which a system can function correctly in the presence of parameter values different from those assumed. An important research problem in resource management is how to determine a resource allocation and scheduling of tasks to machines that optimizes a system performance feature while delivering acceptable level of robustness. Makespan (defined as the time required to complete all ...
