In this paper presented slot selection algorithms in economic model for independent job batch scheduling in a distributed computing with non-dedicated resources. Exiting approaches towards resource co-allocation and multiprocessor job scheduling in economic models of distributed computing are based on search of time-slots in resource occupancy schedules. The sought time-slots must match requirements of necessary span, computational resource properties, and cost. Usually such scheduling methods consider only one suited variant of time-slot set. This paper discloses a scheduling scheme that features multi-variant search. Two algorithms of linear complexity for search of alternative variants are compared. Having several optional resource configurations for each job makes an opportunity to perform an optimization of execution of the whole bath of jobs and to increase overall efficiency of scheduling.
