QoS Quorum-Constrained Resource Management in Wireless Grid

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 3222)


In wireless Grid computing environment, end-to-end Quality of Service (QoS) could be very complex, and this highlights the increasing requirement for the management of QoS itself. Policy quorum-based management offers a more flexible, customizable management solution that allows controlled elements to be configured or scheduled on the fly, for a specific requirement tailored for a customer. This paper presents a QoS guaranteed management scheme, Policy Quorum Resource Management (PQRM), which facilitates the reliable scheduling of the wireless Grid system with dynamic resource management architecture aimed at fulfilling the QoS requirements. Experimental results show the proposed PQRM with resource reconfiguration scheme improves both performance and stability, which is suitable for a wireless Grid services.
