- Project contribution:
The work carried out by the Paris Project-Team relates to the design and implementation of Kerrighed Single System Image (SSI) operating system for high-performance computing on clusters. In the framework of the Edf project, Kerrighed configurable global scheduler has been designed and implemented as well as efficient global process management mechanisms to replicate, migrate and checkpoint processes. A development framework facilitating the implementation of dynamic scheduling policies in Kerrighed has been developed. Experimentations carried out with applications provided by Edf R&D (HRM1D, Aster, Cyrano3, Cathare) have been conducted.
