Title
(EN) METHODS AND APPARATUS FOR SCHEDULING AND RUNNING APPLICATIONS ON COMPUTER GRIDS
(FR) PROCEDES ET APPAREILS DE PROGRAMMATION ET D'EXECUTION D'APPLICATIONS SUR DES GRILLES INFORMATIQUES
Abstract
(EN) A method of running an application on a plurality of computational units (Fig. 1a, 11-14) is described. The application comprises a plurality of tasks (Fig. 1a, 11-14), each task having at least one input file associated therewith. One embodiment of the invention includes the method including the steps of aggregating said plurality of tasks into one or more groups of tasks and allocating each group of tasks to a computational unit, wherein the plurality of tasks are aggregated so that tasks which share one or more input file are included in the same group (Fig. 1a, 10).
(FR) L'invention porte sur un procédé d'exécution d'une application sur une pluralité d'unités informatiques. Cette application comprend une pluralité de tâches, chaque tâche possédant au moins un fichier d'entrée associée à celle-ci. Dans un mode de réalisation de l'invention, ce procédé consiste à regrouper cette pluralité de tâches en un ou plusieurs groupes de tâches et à attribuer chaque groupe de tâches à une unité informatique, cette pluralité de tâche étant regroupée de manière que les tâches partageant un ou plusieurs fichiers d'entrée soient incluses dans le même groupe.
