This is a combination of static and dynamic assignment. Application does static assignment, then periodically changes the assignment when redistribution is needed. This is usually used when the assignment knows the values in the near future, but the values may change further on.


This assumes that future won't change a lot.


@cyl I guess when you say the future won't change a lot, you mean the short term future won't change a lot? Even if long term future changes wildly, I believe semi-static assignment still works because the progressive change from one static phase to another changes mildly.


@haboric yes, I agree with you.
