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.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
