1 Energy-efficient Task Scheduling in Heterogeneous Environment 2013/10/25

2 Outline Literature survey Preliminary scheduling algorithm design for big.LITTLE cores.

3 Energy-efficient Task Scheduling Goals: Energy Minimize energy consumption. Performance Find an optimal makespan. Satisfy constraints (deadline, QoS, …).

4 Task Scheduling NP-Complete Static scheduling Simple, low runtime overhead. Low resource utilization. Dynamic scheduling Good CPU utilization Runtime overhead.

5 Static Scheduling Scheduling heuristics: Cluster-based Duplication-based List-based

6 Cluster-based Scheduling Mainly for homogeneous systems. Form cluster of tasks based on certain criteria. For example, a set of tasks that need to communicate among themselves are grouped together to form a cluster. Tasks of same cluster are scheduled on the same processor.

7 Duplication-based Scheduling For scheduling task of a DAG. Duplicates the tasks onto one or more processors. Reduce the communication cost, network overhead, and potentially reducing the start times of waiting tasks. Shorter makespan.

8 List-based Scheduling Also called Priority-based Scheduling. Tasks are arranged in the form of a list based on certain priorities. Schedule tasks onto the most suitable processor.

9 Power Management Techniques Dynamic Power Management (DPM) Dynamic Voltage and Frequency Scaling (DVFS) Virtualization and green policies Virtual machine/resource consolidation.

Energy aware DAG scheduling on heterogeneous systems, 2010 Combine Decisive Path Scheduling with DVS to minimize both finish time and energy consumption. Task scheduling and voltage selection for energy minimization, 2002 Formulate the scheduling problem as an Integer Programming problem.

Reducing wasted resources to help achieve green data centers, 2008 Adopt two techniques, memory compression and request discrimination, to enhance consolidation and reduce overall energy consumption.

DAG scheduling Using a Lookahead Variant of the Heterogeneous Earliest Finish Time Algorithm, 2010 Develop lookahead-HEFT(Heterogeneous Earliest Finish Time) algorithm which use lookahead information to foresee how decisions affect other tasks.

15 Big.LITTLE core Scheduling Assume that we have n pairs of big.LITTLE cores. Initially all pairs use LITTLE core. Assume we know the following information of a task T k. Task deadline. Estimated execution time on big core. Estimated execution time on LITTLE core.

16 Objective Dynamically decide the number of big and LITTLE cores according to task information. Use the smallest number of big cores to achieve power saving. All tasks are finished before their deadline.

17 Our Heuristic First, we define urgency U to indicate the priority of a task. For Task T k 0 U k 1, then task T k can be finished before deadline on LITTLE core U k > 1, then task T k cant be finished before deadline on LITTLE core.

18 Core Switching Switch one LITTLE core to big core if there exists a task T k with urgency U k > 1. Find all the Tasks {T j, with U j > 0.8}, assign these tasks to big cores. Switch big cores to LITTLE cores if there is no task with urgency greater than 0.8.

19 Summary This is a preliminary thought, well need some further discussions about the heuristic. Also we need to conduct experiments to find suitable parameters. 0.8?

20 Pareto frontier Algorithms for computing the Pareto frontier of a finite set of alternatives have been studied in computer science, sometimes referred to as the maximum vector problem or the skyline query.
