In this paper, we evaluate and compare the performance of several spanning tree routing strategies for divisible load scheduling on arbitrary graphs and derive recommendations as to which routing strategy provides a better trade-off between complexity and time performance. We consider a network comprising heterogeneous processors interconnected by heterogeneous links in an arbitrary manner. We evaluate the performance over a wide range of arbitrary dense graphs with varying connectivity and processor densities and study the effect of network scalability. In addition, we introduce a novel spanning tree routing strategy, which is referred to as minimum equivalent network spanning tree (EST), and analyze its performance. We apply the resource-aware optimal load distribution with optimal sequencing (RAOLD-OS) scheduling algorithm presented in the literature for obtaining an optimal solution. This study attempts to pool all known and applicable divisible load scheduling algorithms for arbitrary networks and presents a collective and comparative view of their performance.
