Multi-level Cooperative Resource Management
The problem addressed by the COOP project (Dec. 2009 — May 2013) was to reconcile two layers – Programming Model Frameworks (PMF) and Resource Management Systems (RMS) – with respect to a number of tasks that they both try to handle independently. PMF needs to have a knowledge of resources to select the most efficient transformation of abstract programming concepts into executable ones. However, the actual management of resources is done by RMS in an opaque way, based on a simple abstraction of applications.
