3/2-Dual Approximation for CPU/GPU Scheduling

Authors: Bernhard Sebastian Germann, Klaus Jansen, Felix Ohnesorge, and Malte Tutas

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 301, 22nd International Symposium on Experimental Algorithms (SEA 2024)


Abstract
We present a fast and efficient 3/2 dual approximation algorithm for CPU/GPU scheduling under the objective of makespan minimization. In CPU/GPU scheduling tasks can be scheduled on two different architectures. When executed on the CPU, a task is moldable and can be assigned to multiple cores. The running time becomes a function in the assigned cores. On a GPU, the task is a classical job with a set processing time. Both settings have drawn recent independent scientific interest. For the moldable CPU scheduling, the current best known constant rate approximation is a 3/2 approximation algorithm [Wu et al. EJOR volume 306]. The best efficient algorithm for this setting is a 3/2+ε approximation [Mounie et al. SIAM '07] whereas GPU scheduling admits a 13/11 approximation [Coffman, Garey, Johnson SIAM'78]. We improve upon the current best known algorithms for CPU/GPU scheduling by Bleuse et al. by formulating a novel multidimensional multiple choice knapsack to allot tasks to either architecture and schedule them there with known algorithms. This yields an improved running time over the current state of the art. We complement our theoretical results with experimentation that shows a significant speedup by using practical optimizations and explore their efficacy.

The Container Selection Problem

Authors: Viswanath Nagarajan, Kanthi K. Sarpatwar, Baruch Schieber, Hadas Shachnai, and Joel L. Wolf

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 40, Approximation, Randomization, and Combinatorial Optimization. Algorithms and Techniques (APPROX/RANDOM 2015)


Abstract
We introduce and study a network resource management problem that is a special case of non-metric k-median, naturally arising in cross platform scheduling and cloud computing. In the continuous d-dimensional container selection problem, we are given a set C of input points in d-dimensional Euclidean space, for some d >= 2, and a budget k. An input point p can be assigned to a "container point" c only if c dominates p in every dimension. The assignment cost is then equal to the L1-norm of the container point. The goal is to find k container points in the d-dimensional space, such that the total assignment cost for all input points is minimized. The discrete variant of the problem has one key distinction, namely, the container points must be chosen from a given set F of points. For the continuous version, we obtain a polynomial time approximation scheme for any fixed dimension d>= 2. On the negative side, we show that the problem is NP-hard for any d>=3. We further show that the discrete version is significantly harder, as it is NP-hard to approximate without violating the budget k in any dimension d>=3. Thus, we focus on obtaining bi-approximation algorithms. For d=2, the bi-approximation guarantee is (1+epsilon,3), i.e., for any epsilon>0, our scheme outputs a solution of size 3k and cost at most (1+epsilon) times the optimum. For fixed d>2, we present a (1+epsilon,O((1/epsilon)log k)) bi-approximation algorithm.
