On a Virtual Shared Memory Cluster System with Virtual Machines

Minakshi Tripathy and C. R. Tripathy

Abstract—In this paper, an architecture with a load balancing model and a fault tolerant model for virtual shared memory clusters is proposed. The centralized dynamic load balancing model uses manager worker concept with a virtualized compute server. The virtual server can be expanded “on the fly” for load balancing by adding virtual machines temporarily. The fault tolerant model controlled by a virtual machine monitor describes the checkpointing based recovery methods. The performance evaluation results show that the proposed system achieves significant speedup in terms of execution time and checkpoint time.

Index Terms—Virtual cluster, virtual machine, virtual server,load balancing, fault tolerance, check pointing and recovery
