Abstract:

Scheduling and allocation of computing facilities is generally carried out in a very primitive and ineffective way. The difficulty stems from a number of sources including 1 semantic confusion, 2 failure to consider all relevant factors, 3 failure to establish a global context for analysis of specific operational problems. This paper attempts to establish the required context by considering all relevant factors and by carefully sorting out the semantics. Specifically, market principles are employed to characterize the environment at its most general level. At the detailed level, a model based on the dimensions of 1 demand magnitude, 2 interaction rate, and 3 deadline penalty severity is presented. Author
