Improving utilization of heterogeneous clusters

Abstract: Datacenters often agglutinate sets of nodes with different capabilities, leading to a sub-optimal resource utilization. One of the best ways of improving utilization is to balance the load by taking into account the heterogeneity of these clusters. This article presents a novel way of expressing computational capacity, more adequate for heterogeneous clusters, and also advocates for task migration in order to further improve the utilization. The experimental evaluation shows that both proposals are advantageous and allow improving the utilization of heterogeneous clusters and reducing the makespan to 16.7% and 17.1%, respectively.
