Throughput maximization in multiprocessor speed-scaling

Abstract : In the classical energy minimization problem, introduced in [Yao et al., FOCS’95], we are given a set of n jobs each one characterized by its release date, its deadline, its processing volume and we aim to find a feasible schedule of the jobs on a single speed-scalable machine so that the total energy consumption is minimized. Here, we study the throughput maximization version of the problem where we are given a budget of energy E and where every job has also a value. Our goal is to determine a feasible schedule maximizing the (weighted) throughput of the jobs that are executed between their respective release dates and deadlines. We first consider the preemptive non-migratory multiprocessor case in a fully heterogeneous environment in which every job has a machine-dependent release date, deadline and processing volume and every machine obeys to a different speed-to-power function. We present a polynomial time greedy algorithm based on the primal-dual scheme that approximates the optimum solution within a factor depending on the energy functions (the factor is constant for typical energy functions of form P(z) = zα). Then, we focus on the non-preemptive case for which we consider a fixed number of identical parallel machines and two important families of instances: (1) equal processing volume jobs; and (2) agreeable jobs. For both cases we present optimal pseudo-polynomial-time algorithms.
