There is relatively something to say about multicomputer scheduling because once a process has been assigned to a node, any local scheduling algorithm will do unless gang scheduling is being used.

However precisely because there is so less control when or once a process has been assigned to a node, the decision about which process should go on which node is important.

This is in contrast to the multiprocessor computer systems, in which all the processes live in the same memory and can be scheduled on any central processing unit at will.

Consequently, it is worth looking at how processes can be assigned to the nodes in effective way.
