Dynamic load balancing on a virtually-shared memory parallel computer system
The load balancing scheme of a massively parallel computer system named PISMA is analysed in this paper. The theory behind the load balancing scheme is presented and several variations of the same scheme, which differ in complexity, are studied with the help of a simulator. It is shown that with a 10% overhead for load calculation a well balanced system can be obtained, which can execute a range of applications efficiently.
