Grid resource monitoring system should take charge of watching a large amount of heterogeneous resources and their usage state. The paper analyzes the disadvantages of the current grid resource monitoring framework, then proposes a new monitoring model GMF-BMA and discusses the communication among middle layer, infrastructure layer and sensor layer in details. A prototype implementation of the model based on Grasshopper mobile agent platform is also described. Experiments reveal that the framework can reduce the additional overhead produced by grid resource monitoring.
