An Architecture for Scheduling of Services in a Distributed System.
In: DSOM'96 - Seventh IFIP/IEEE International Workshop on Distributed Systems: Operations & Management.
Advances in technology, giving increasing importance to information service networks, and the increasing use of personal workstations are two factors which permit the construction of distributed applications running on a large set of interconnected systems. Existing frameworks for the development of distributed applications only provide for manual scheduling of application services, in particular there are no policies provided to distribute the load of the system across its nodes. This paper presents an architecture for the scheduling of services in a distributed system, that incorporates policies to enable distribution of load among the nodes of the system. A scheduling scheme and an infrastructure to support scheduling are also discussed.
