Abstract or Summary
  • Many different types of distributed batch scheduling systems have been developed in the last decade to take advantage of the decentralization of computers and the enormous investments that many companies and educational institutions have in desktop workstations. Based on the premise that the majority of desktop workstations are significantly underutilized, distributed batch systems allow users to submit and run jobs when these workstations are available. While simpler systems determine machine availability by time of day (e.g., 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m.), more sophisticated systems determine availability dynamically, migrating tasks when the availability changes. Ring Leader is a distributed batch system currently under development at Hewlett Packard. Since meeting the objectives of a distributed system rely on the intelligent use of idle workstations, good resource determination and efficient utilization decisions are a high priority for such a system. System performance will depend heavily on the process of deciding where jobs should be run. This thesis explains the development of Ring Leader's history based resource utilization scheme, and compares its performance to more simplistic algorithms.
