Runtime incremental parallel scheduling (RIPS) is a new approach for load balancing. In parallel scheduling, all processors cooperate together to balance the workload. Parallel scheduling accurately balances the load by using global load information. In incremental scheduling, the system scheduling activity alternates with the underlying computation work. RIPS produces high-quality load balancing and adapts to applications of nonuniform structures. This paper presents methods for scheduling a single job on a dedicated parallel machine.
