Scheduling Problems in Hierarchical Grid Environment

  • Joanna Kołodziej
Part of the Studies in Computational Intelligence book series (SCI, volume 419)


Scheduling and efficient resource management are the key issues for grid computing. This chapter reveals the complexity of the scheduling problem in Computational Grids under various criteria and users’ requirements. This chapter presents a simple taxonomy of Grid Systems and defines the hierarchic multi-layer system model along with a general characteristics of the class of grid users, their functions and requirements related to scheduling in grid computing. It introduces a general classification and notation of the grid scheduling problems and the basic scheduling attributes. This chapter ends with a short discussion on the grid users behavior scenarios related to scheduling and a brief survey of the realistic scheduling models.
