Abstract

See full text

The present invention provides for redistributing workloads among computers to optimize resource utilization. Utilization by software workloads of computer resources is monitored to yield utilization data. A utilization chronology is updated using the utilization data. The chronology is analyzed to yield resource utilization predictions. The workloads are redistributed among the resources at least in part as function of said predictions.
