Abstract

See full text

A computer sequentially selects, when receiving a job execution request specifying the requested number of nodes, an axis from the n axes of n-dimensional space (n is an integer of two or greater) forming a network where nodes are connected by mesh or torus interconnect. The computer gradually extends the width of a temporary range of coordinates of the selected axis from a prescribed value, and determines, as a range for the selected axis, the temporary range where the number of available nodes whose coordinates on each defined axis having a determined range fall within the range and whose coordinates on the selected axis fall within the temporary range is greater than or equal to the requested number of nodes. After determining ranges for all the axes, the computer determines which nodes to assign to the job from available nodes whose coordinates on each axis fall within its range.
