Summary Cluster computing has come to prominence as a cost-effective parallel processing tool for solving many complex computational problems. In this paper, we propose a new timesharing opportunistic scheduling policy to support remote batch job executions over networked clusters to be used in conjunction with the Condor Up-Down scheduling algorithm. We show that timesharing approaches can be used in an opportunistic setting to improve both mean job slowdowns and mean response times with little or no throughput reduction. We also show that the proposed algorithm achieves significant improvement in job response time and slowdown as compared to exiting approaches and some recently proposed new approaches.
