Abstract

Organizational clusters are often shared among users who compete over resources, but the organization's goal is to increase the overall utility gathered from the cluster. That is, to maximize the aggregate benefit drawn from the cluster. To overcome this problem, we enhanced SLURM with an auctioning system. We evaluated our work on several real cluster traces. Our auctioning scheduler reduces the weight of the queued jobs by 3X-33X compared with backfilling.
