Independent Batch Scheduling: ETC Matrix Model and Grid Simulator
This chapter addresses the problem of Independent Batch Scheduling in Computational Grids (CGs). The Expected Time to Compute (ETC) matrix model is defined and employed for the specification of the main scheduling objectives, namely makespan and flowtime, in terms of completion times of the grid computational nodes. This chapter ends with a outline of the main concept of the grid simulator dedicated to the batch scheduling. This simulator is used in the experimental analysis presented in the rest of this book.
