Most studies of processor scheduling in multiprogrammed parallel systems have ignored the I/O performed by applications. Recent studies have demonstrated that significant I/O operations are performed by a number of different classes of parallel applications. This paper focuses on some basic issues that underlie scheduling in multiprogrammed parallel environments running applications with I/O. Characterization of the I/O behavior of parallel applications is discussed first. Based on simulation models this research investigates the influence of these I/O characteristics on processor scheduling
