An Optimization of Processor Allocation Method in Heterogeneous Multi-Cluster Computing

Savita Mahajan, Rasleen Kaur, , ,


Cluster computing is an innovative technology which broadens horizons in whole world business but shortcomings of cluster are becoming hindrance to opt this technology. So, frequent optimizations are required to make this technology commendable. The foremost area of concern is processor allocation, utilization rate, system performance and job scheduling in heterogeneous multi-cluster systems due to which this mechanization lacks behind. To resolve these problems we propose an enhanced approach towards processor allocation in heterogeneous multi-cluster systems which maximize the resource utilization rate, increase system performance and manage load efficiently.
