    Some popular computing technologies, such as ubiquitous computing, grid computing and thin-client computing, bring people to a much more distributed and pervasive computing environment. Based on these innovative technologies, a distributed virtual personal computing (DVPC) paradigm is coming into being. One of the fundamental challenges in the DVPC design is the virtually integrated but physically... View full abstract»

    Grid computing has made substantial advances during the last decade. Grid middleware such as globus has contributed greatly in making this possible. There are, however, significant barriers to the adoption of grid computing in other fields, most notably day-to-day user computing environments. We will demonstrate in this paper that this is primarily due to the limitations of the existing grid middl... View full abstract»

    The bulk synchronous parallelism (BSP) model is useful in developing scalable software for parallel computation. To adapt the BSP model to the grid environment, the BSP-G, a BSP development library based on the services of Globus Toolkit has been proposed. In this paper, we further the work of BSP-G and introduce an agent assisted ServiceBSP model. The agent in this model could make a QoS-aware se... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we propose a novel scheme that can be used to build high performance and high available database cluster. This scheme employs a middleware approach, which can replicate the databases on the server nodes of a cluster and keep them consistent during the fly. Read-one-write-all strategy is used to execute the read only queries of the concurrent transactions in parallel so as to improve... View full abstract»

    With the development of grid techniques and the growing complexity of grid applications, reasoning the temporal properties of grid application to ensure its reliability is becoming more and more critical. In this work, two decomposition approaches are proposed to improve the performance of the temporal reasoning of complex grid applications. The proposed approaches are implemented in our GridPiAna...

  • Modelling Robust Resource Allocation for Grid Computing

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (224 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    With the increase in size, complexity, and heterogeneity of grid computing environments, we argue that, in addition to performance metrics, the resource allocation algorithms should be designed for robustness. That is, they should have the ability to maintain performance under a wide variety of operating conditions. Although robustness is easy to define, there are no widely used metrics for this p...

    This paper presents an economic-based resource allocation algorithm - mix optimization algorithm to meet user requirements in proportional resource sharing grid environment. The mix optimization algorithm is targeted to minimize two objectives, i.e., competing users 'processing cost and competing users' executing time with budget and deadline constraints, using multi-objective programming method. ...

    Grid computing systems (machines) pool together the resources of a heterogeneous collection of computing systems that are widely distributed, possibly around the globe, to create a virtual computing organization. Users can "draw" resources either from local or from remote computing resources to execute their jobs. We only consider such a system in tree networks, and study a basic allocation proble...

    Researchers have proved that the general computing capability of the mainstream programmable GPU (graph processing unit, the core of graphic card) is more powerful than that of the popular CPU (central processing unit) recently. In this paper, we attempt to develop such a desktop grid, in which the programmable GPUs' powerful general computing ability could be linked in. The hierarchical topology ... View full abstract»

    Many existing monitoring systems are not easily interoperable for the lack of consistency. A uniform monitoring framework is proposed to leverage interoperability. A consistent data provider is designed upon GMA producers to facilitate common information representation. Monitoring service agent and republishers are developed to facilitate the information distribution and aggregation. A prototype i... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we construct four DRBL-based diskless Linux PC clusters and install Globus Toolkit and Condor scheduler on the master node of each cluster. All diskless clusters can be merged into a powerful computing environment. To utilize the computing power, we propose a jobs allocation strategy for application execution. We use HPL to conduct some performance evaluations and analyze those data... View full abstract»

    As the research of grid goes on, users demand increasingly high quality of task completion and high-quality scientific computing tasks continue to increase. This renders QoS a new problem that is to be considered in the grid scheduling algorithm. In this paper, a grid tasks scheduling strategy based on QoS priority grouping is proposed. In this algorithm, the deadline property of task, acceptation... View full abstract»
