Optimal Performance of Parallel-Server Systems with Job Size Prediction Errors
MetadataShow full item record
Modern communication networks integrate distributed computing architectures, in which customers are processed in parallel. We show how to minimize the waiting time of customer’s jobs by leveraging a simple threshold-based job dispatching policy. The optimal policy leverages the SITA routing, which assigns jobs to servers according to the size of the job. Moreover, the optimal policy permits to optimize system performance even when the job size is not known a priori and is estimated by means of error-prone predictors.
