Power-aware scheduling problem has been a recent issue in cluster systems not only for operational cost due to electricity cost, but also for system reliability. In this paper, we provide SLA-based scheduling algorithms for bag-of-tasks applications with deadline constraints on power-aware cluster systems. The scheduling objective is to minimize power consumption as long as the system provides the service levels of users. A bag-of-tasks application should finish all the sub-tasks before the deadline as the service level. We provide the power-aware scheduling algorithms for both time-shared and space-shared resource sharing policies. The simulation results show that the proposed algorithms reduce much power consumption compared to static voltage schemes.
