Abstract : In this report, we focus on scheduling jobs on computing Grids. In our model, a Grid job is made of a large collection of input data sets, which must all be processed by the same task graph or workflow, thus resulting in a series of workflow problem. We are looking for an efficient solution with regard to throughput and latency, while avoiding solutions requiring complex control. We thus only consider single-allocation strategies. We present an algorithm based on mixed linear programming to find an optimal allocation, and this for different routing policies depending on how much latitude we have on communications. Then, using simulations, we compare our allocations to reference heuristics. Our results show that our algorithm almost always finds an allocation with good throughput and low latency, and that it outperforms the reference heuristics, especially under communication-intensive scenarios.
