We study the expected completion time of some recently proposed algorithms for distributed computing which redundantly assign computing tasks to multiple machines in order to tolerate a certain number of machine failures. We analytically show that not only the amount of redundancy but also the task-to-machine assignments affect the latency in a distributed system. We study systems with a fixed number of computing tasks that are split in possibly overlapping batches, and independent exponentially distributed machine service times. We show that, for such systems, the uniform replication of non- overlapping (disjoint) batches of computing tasks achieves the minimum expected computing time. 查看全文>>
