Task-based programming models have shown their potential for efficiency and scalability in parallel and distributed systems. With such a model, a parallel application is broken down into a graph of tasks, which are subsequently scheduled for execution. Recently, implementations of task-based models have addressed distributed memory and heterogeneous systems with accelerators. However, the problem of scheduling tasks as well as allocating resources at runtime is still a challenge. In this paper, we propose coordinated and cooperative task scheduling across multiple applications. The main idea is to exploit the application's idle time e.g. from imbalance to serve tasks from another application. The experiments use Chameleon, a task-based framework for reactive tasking in distributed memory systems. In various example scenarios, we show improvements in CPU utilization of 5% - 15% by coordinated scheduling.
