    • A Tabu search algorithm for scheduling independent jobs in computational grids 

      Xhafa Xhafa, Fatos; Carretero Casado, Javier Sebastián; Dorronsoro, Bernabé; Alba, Enrique (2009)
      Open Access
      The efficient allocation of jobs to grid resources is indispensable for high performance grid-based applications, and it is a computationally hard problem even when there are no dependencies among jobs. We present in this ...
    • BSLD threshold driven parallel job scheduling for energy efficient HPC centers 

      Etinski, Maja; Corbalán González, Julita; Labarta Mancho, Jesús José; Valero Cortés, Mateo (2009)
      External research report
      Open Access
      Recently, power awareness in high performance computing (HPC) community has increased significantly. While CPU power reduction of HPC applications using Dynamic Voltage Frequency Scaling (DVFS) has been explored thoroughly, ...
    • DJSB: Dynamic Job Scheduling Benchmark 

      López Herrero, Víctor; Jokanovic, Ana; D'Amico, Marco; Garcia Gasulla, Marta; Sirvent Pardell, Raül; Corbalán González, Julita (Springer, 2018-02-28)
      Conference lecture
      Open Access
      High-performance computing (HPC) systems are very big and powerful systems, with the main goal of achieving maximum performance of parallel jobs. Many dynamic factors influence the performance which makes this goal a ...
    • Evaluating SLURM simulator with real-machine SLURM and vice versa 

      Jokanovic, Ana; D'Amico, Marco; Corbalán González, Julita (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Having a precise and a fast job scheduler model that resembles the real-machine job scheduling software behavior is extremely important in the field of job scheduling. The idea behind SLURM simulator is preserving the ...
    • Holistic slowdown driven scheduling and resource management for malleable jobs 

      D'Amico, Marco; Jokanovic, Ana; Corbalán González, Julita (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2019)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      In job scheduling, the concept of malleability has been explored since many years ago. Research shows that malleability improves system performance, but its utilization in HPC never became widespread. The causes are the ...
    • Nature inspired meta-heuristics for grid scheduling: single and multi-objective optimization approaches 

      Abraham, Ajith; Liu, Hongbo; Grosan, Crina; Xhafa Xhafa, Fatos (Springer, 2008)
      Part of book or chapter of book
      Open Access
      In this chapter, we review a few important concepts from Grid computing related to scheduling problems and their resolution using heuristic and meta-heuristic approaches. Scheduling problems are at the heart of any Grid-like ...
