Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2017 im Fachbereich Informatik - Technische Informatik, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Paralleles Rechnen ist die Zusammensetzung der Ergebnisse mehrerer Teilberechnungen zu einem Gesamtergebnis. Es existieren mehrere Gründe wie z.B. die Ausführungsdauer. Durch das Parallele Rechnen ist es bei Simulationen möglich viel Zeit zu sparen und die Ergebnisse schneller zu erhalten. Ein anderer Grund ist die Ressourcenbeschränktheit. Simulationen können die Kapazitäten (z.B. Speicherkapazität) eines einzigen Computers übertreffen. Um trotzdem die Simulation durchzuführen, könnte man mehrere Computer miteinander verbinden. Der letzte Grund den wir erwähnen ist die Komplexe Problemdarstellung. Es gibt Simulationen die so komplex sind, dass um ein Ergebnis zu erhalten, eine Parallele Bearbeitung die einzige Möglichkeit ist. Paralleles Rechnen wird in vielen verschiedenen Bereichen wie z.B. in der Wirtschaft (Big Data, Data Mining...) und in der Forschung (Physik, Mathematik...) verwendet.

This book presents task-scheduling techniques for emerging complex parallel architectures including heterogeneous multi-core architectures, warehouse-scale datacenters, and distributed big data processing systems. The demand for high computational capacity has led to the growing popularity of multicore processors, which have become the mainstream in both the research and real-world settings. Yet to date, there is no book exploring the current task-scheduling techniques for the emerging complex parallel architectures. Addressing this gap, the book discusses state-of-the-art task-scheduling techniques that are optimized for different architectures, and which can be directly applied in real parallel systems. Further, the book provides an overview of the latest advances in task-scheduling policies in parallel architectures, and will help readers understand and overcome current and emerging issues in this field.
