When viewing the Technical Program schedule, on the far righthand side
is a column labeled "PLANNER." Use this planner to build your own
schedule. Once you select an event and want to add it to your personal
schedule, just click on the calendar icon of your choice (outlook
calendar, ical calendar or google calendar) and that event will be
stored there. As you select events in this manner, you will have your
own schedule to guide you through the week.
You can also create your personal schedule on the SC11 app (Boopsie) on your smartphone. Simply select a session you want to attend and "add" it to your plan. Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.
An Integrated Job Scheduling Framework for Production Supercomputers
SESSION: Doctoral Research Showcase (2 of 2)
EVENT TYPE: Doctoral Research Showcase
TIME: 4:30PM - 4:45PM
SESSION CHAIR: Volodymyr Kindratenko
ABSTRACT: Job scheduling is essential on large-scale computing systems. While numerous research has been focused on improving job scheduling theoretically, our work is motivated by practical issues observed in current production supercomputers, caused by reasons such as user behaviors, emerging system architecture, and new workload characteristics. Further, several challenges are identified in building extreme scale supercomputers, such as reliability, I/O performance, and energy efficiency, which arguably can be mitigated by appropriate job scheduling strategies. In this study, we proposed an integrated job scheduling framework, aiming at addressing the issues and challenges in resource management for large-scale production supercomputers. We designed a set of new schemes and implemented it in a production resource manager. We conducted simulation-based evaluation using real job traces from production supercomputers. Experimental results show our schemes can effectively improve job scheduling regarding both user satisfaction and system utilization.
