    In high-performance computing (HPC) settings, in which multiprocessor machines are shared among users with potentially competing resource demands, processors are allocated to user workload using space sharing. Typically, users interact with a given machine by submitting their jobs to a centralized batch scheduler that implements a site-specific, and often partially hidden, policy designed to maxim...

  • An End-to-End Framework for Provisioning-Based Resource and Application Management

    Resources in distributed infrastructure such as the grid are typically autonomously managed and shared across a distributed set of end users. These characteristics result in a fundamental conflict: resource providers optimize for throughput and utilization which coupled with a stochastic multiuser workload results in nondeterministic best effort service for any one application. This conflicts with... View full abstract»

    In Grid environments, where virtual organization resources are allocated to users using mechanisms analogue to market economies, strong price fluctuations can have an impact on the nontrivial quality-of-service expected by end users. In this paper, we investigate the effects of the use of option contracts on the quality of service offered by a broker-based Grid resource allocation model. Option co... View full abstract»

    This paper exploits the interlayer coupling of a cross-layer design concept in Grid computing environment. An algorithm for joint optimization of resource allocation and user quality-of-service (QoS) satisfaction control that combines both application-centric and system-centric scheduling benefits is proposed. The algorithm aims to maximize the global utility as well as the QoS is guaranteed. We f... View full abstract»

    Recent years have witnessed the rapid development of Grid computing over the Internet, which promises to empower highly desirable resource sharing and cooperation among different organizations. However, there remains a challenging issue facing Grid environments. Malicious or selfish nodes consume precious resources without contribution or even try to destroy the system intentionally. This can seve... View full abstract»

    A key challenge in grid computing is the achievement of efficient and self-organized resource management. Grids are often large scale, heterogeneous, and unpredictable systems. Introducing group structures can help to distribute coordination efforts, but higher levels of adaptation and learning in the coordination protocols are still required in order to cope with system complexity. We provide a s... View full abstract»

    The necessity of identifying suitable computing resources to solve a scientific or engineering problem in a Grid environment requires more and more sophisticated resource management systems: 1) strategies and technologies should be able to master the complexity of modern large-scale networks and computing facilities and 2) the convergence of Grid computing toward the service-oriented approach is f...

    This paper presents a hybrid resource management environment, operating on both application and system levels developed for minimizing the execution time of parallel applications with divisible workload on heterogeneous grid resources. The system is based on the adaptive workload balancing algorithm (AWLB) incorporated into the distributed analysis environment (DIANE) user-level scheduling (ULS) e... View full abstract»

    Since the management and beneficial utilization of highly dynamic grid resources cannot be handled by the users themselves, various grid resource management tools have been developed, supporting different grids. To ease the simultaneous utilization of different middleware systems, researchers need to revise current solutions. Grid Interoperability can be achieved at different levels of grid system...
