We present a study of six batch-pipeline scientific workloads that are candidates for execution on computational grids. Whereas other studies focus on the behavior of single applications, this study characterizes workloads composed of pipelines of sequential processes that use file storage for communication and also share measurements of the memory, CPU, and I/O requirements of individual components as well as analyses of I/O sharing within complete batches. We conclude with a discussion of the ramifications of these workloads for end-to-end scalability and overall system design.
