A set of four heuristic algorithms is presented to schedule tasks that have headlines and resource requirements in a distributed system. When a task arrives at a node, the local scheduler at that node attempts to guarantee that the task will complete execution on that node before its deadline. If the attempt fails, the scheduling components on individual nodes cooperate to determine which other
