Abstract : We consider a distributed system where processes can only communicate by message passing and need a coherent view of the load (e.g., workload, memory) of others to take dynamic decisions (scheduling). We present several mechanisms to obtain distributed estimates of such information and experiment them in the context of a real application, an asynchronous parallel solver for large sparse systems of linear equations.
