<p><b>Abstract</b>—This paper considers an analytic data distribution for improving the performance of host-client type parallel applications which exhibit serialized communication patterns. The technique involves assuming the serialized communications is enforced, which simplifies data analysis and can provide the basis for real-time dynamic load balancing. This distribution has been tested using a parallel matrix multiplication implementation and a parallel MPEG compression implementation. The key results of this paper are that analytic distribution can reduce execution time and increase scalability of certain parallel applications over typical equal data distributions.</p>
