Stochastic Modeling and Optimization of Stragglers

Abstract:┬áMapReduce framework is widely used to parallelize batch jobs since it exploits a high degree of multi-tasking to process them. However, it has been observed that when the number of servers increases, the map phase can take much longer than expected. This paper analytically shows that the stochastic behavior of the servers has a negative […]

Modeling and Optimization of Straggling Mappers

ABSTRACT MapReduce framework is widely used to parallelize batch jobs since it exploits a high degree of multi-tasking to process them. However, it has been observed that when the number of mappers increases, the map phase can take much longer than expected. This paper analytically shows that stochastic behavior of mapper nodes has a negative […]

Performance Modeling and Optimization of MapReduce

Abstract: MapReduce framework is widely used to parallelize batch jobs of great companies. MapReduce splits the job for each mapper in the map phase and then intermediate tasks are synced in reducers to be processed in the next stage. It exploits a high degree of multi-tasking to process the jobs as soon as possible. However […]
