On-line parallel debugging can provide very accurate and reliable information
in diagnosis of parallel programs.
Unfortunately, commercially available tools for on-line parallel debugging
are hardly seen.
This is mainly due to the lack of a suitable environment for multiprogramming
of mixed parallel and sequential workloads so that the resources cannot
be utilised efficiently.
In this paper we present a two-level scheduling scheme for
mixed parallel and sequential workloads on parallel machines -
a key step in the establishment of a proper environment
for on-line parallel debugging.
