Virtual Machine (VM) live migration is one strategic approach that can be employed to reduce energy consumption and increase the utilisation of a single computer in large computing infrastructure. However, virtualisation in High Throughput Computing (HTC) has received limited attention in the literature. In this paper, we present an extension of an existing tracedriven simulation to incorporate virtualisation. Furthermore, we implement the pre-copy live migration algorithm to provide a test environment for job live migration in HTC system. Our simulation provides the total number of migrations and their overall time of migrations as well as calculates the energy consumption of migrations during its runtime. In this paper, we propose two methods to perform the live migration in the HTC system. We demonstrate that our responsive migration could save up to 75% of the system wasted energy.
