This page archives the workload logs and problem descriptions presented at JSSPP workshops.


MetaCentrum (2013) and CERIT-SC (2013, 2015, 2017) workload traces

These 4 workloads come from the 2018 paper "Evaluating the Impact of Soft Walltimes on Job Scheduling Performance" by Dalibor Klusáček and Václav Chlumsky.
It contains real-life workload traces from the CERIT-SC and MetaCentrum systems.
Detailed description of the workload can be found in the aforementioned paper.
The workload contains four major traces, two of them come in the standard SWF format, the remaining two are delivered in a format that is compatible with the Alea job scheduling simulator, enabling so-called dynamic workload adaptation, i.e., dynamic batch arrival time adaptations according to the scheduler's performance (see the paper for details): Newly added fields into the base SWF format represent: execution node(s) name, queue name, submit arguments of qsub command, respectively. SWF format description is available here.
