Resource and job management systems (often called batch systems, job schedulers, or workload managers) schedule jobs and provide resources in large-scale computing environments. ElastiSim is a batch-system simulator for malleable and evolving workloads, including the simulation of
- jobs and applications,
- the scheduling algorithm, and
- the platform (powered by SimGrid).
Using ElastiSim, users can evaluate policies for the combined scheduling of rigid, moldable, malleable, and evolving workloads. These pages introduce ElastiSim, give an overview of its functionalities, and provide a user manual, helping users to establish individual simulations.
