With the advent of new computing technologies, such as cloud computing and contemporary parallel processing systems, the building blocks of computing systems have become multi-dimensional. Traditional scheduling systems based on a single-resource optimization, like processors, fail to provide near optimal solutions. The efficient use of new computing systems depends on the efficient use of several resource dimensions. Thus, the scheduling systems have to fully use all resources. In this paper, we address the problem of multi-resource scheduling via multi-capacity bin-packing. We propose the application of multi-capacity-aware resource scheduling at host selection layer and queuing mechanism layer of a scheduling system. The experimental results demonstrate performance improvements of scheduling in terms of waittime and slowdown metrics
