Abstract: MapReduce-like frameworks have achieved tremendous success for large-scale data processing in data centers. A key feature distinguishing MapReduce from previous parallel models is that it interleaves parallel and sequential computation. Past schemes, and especially their theoretical bounds, on general parallel models are therefore, unlikely to be applied to MapReduce directly. There are many recent studies on MapReduce job and task scheduling. These studies assume that the servers are assigned in advance. In current data centers, multiple MapReduce jobs of different importance levels run together. In this paper, we investigate a schedule problem for MapReduce taking server assignment into consideration as well. We formulate a MapReduce server-job organizer problem (MSJO) and show that it is NP-complete. We develop a 3-approximation algorithm and a fast heuristic design. Moreover, we further propose a novel fine-grained practical algorithm for general MapReduce-like task scheduling problem. Finally, we evaluate our algorithms through both simulations and experiments on Amazon EC2 with an implementation with Hadoop. The results confirm the superiority of our algorithms.
