Optimizing Live Migration of Virtual Machines in SMP Clusters for HPC Applications

Atif, Muhammad; Strazdins, Peter


Live migration is one of the most useful features provided by todays' virtual machine monitors (VMM). It enables seamless hardware upgrades, provides fault tolerance, achieves load balancing and saves power through server consolidation. These features can also be beneficial in HPC environments. This paper presents a comprehensive study of the migration facility of the Xen VMM, specifically targeting HPC applications. We analyze the effects of live and nonlive migration techniques on HPC...[Show more]
