Comments on ``Design and performance evaluation of load distribution strategies for multiple loads on heterogeneous linear daisy chain networks''

Abstract : Min, Veeravalli, and Barlas proposed strategies to minimize the overall execution time of one or several divisible loads on a heterogeneous linear network, using one or more installments. We show on a very simple example that the proposed approach does not always produce a solution and that, when it does, the solution is often suboptimal. We also show how to find an optimal scheduling for any instance, once the number of installments per load is given. Finally, we formally prove that under a linear cost model, as in the original paper, an optimal schedule has an infinite number of installments. Such a cost model can therefore not be sed to design practical multi-installment strategies.
