Scheduling of jobs in High Performance Computing environment is a NP-Hard Problem. Many conventional algorithms were used by the researchers to solve this problem. But the results got by using swarm intelligence based algorithms gives a near optimal solution then conventional method. In this paper, we propose two such algorithms like Firefly Algorithm and Intelligent Water Drop Algorithm which outperforms the results of conventional algorithms and also some swarm intelligence algorithms like Ant Colony Optimization, Particle Swarm Optimization comparatively. Both this proposed algorithms are used to dynamically create an optimal schedule to finish the submitted jobs in a High Performance Computing environment showing promising results.
