  • Patent number: 9571584
    Abstract: One of first and second computers computes a first time taken to transfer first data, which is stored by an application process that is executed and suspended by the second computer and to be executed by the first computer, from the second computer to the first computer. The one computes a second time on basis of a transfer time and an elapsed execution time. The transfer time is taken to transfer second data from a storage area to the first computer. The second data is used to execute the process from beginning. The elapsed execution time is taken to execute the process up to a suspend point. The one determines to resume the process from the suspend point when the first time is shorter than the second time, and re-execute the process from the beginning when the second time is shorter than the first time.

  • Patent number: 8544009
    Abstract: A master calculator assigns a series of processing groups to a communicable worker calculator. The master receives information about an execution time and a waiting time from the worker calculator for the series of processing groups. The computer acquires the time elapsed between transmitting the processing group transmitted to the worker calculator and receiving the execution result of the processing group from the worker calculator. The master calculates the communication time required for communication with the worker calculator on the basis of the information received and the elapsed time acquired. The master calculates the number of processings to be assigned to the worker calculator on the basis of the communication time calculated. The master generates a processing group to be assigned to the worker calculator on the basis of the number of processings calculated, and transmits the processing group generated to the worker calculator.
