This paper addresses the load balancing problem, which is one of the key issues in high-performance computing (HPC) platforms. A novel method, called decentralized active queue management (DAQM), is proposed to provide a fair task distribution in a heterogeneous computing environment for HPC platforms. An implementation of the DAQM is presented, which consists of an ON-OFF queue control and a utility maximization-based coordination scheme. The stability of the queue control scheme and the convergence of the algorithm for utility maximization have been assessed by rigorous analysis. To demonstrate the performance of the developed queueing control system, numerical simulations are carried out and the obtained results confirm the efficiency and viability of the developed scheme.
