Abstract

See full text

The disclosed embodiments provide a system that determines whether to dynamically replicate data segments on a node in a computing cluster that stores a collection of data segments. During operation, the system identifies a data segment from the collection that is predicted to be frequently accessed by future tasks executing in the cluster. The system then determines a slowdown that would result for the current workload of the node if the data segment were to be replicated to the node. The system also determines a predicted future benefit that would be associated with replicating the data segment to the node. If the predicted slowdown is less than the predicted future benefit, the replication system replicates the data segment to the node.
