This work presents dispatching strategies based on methods of job-flow and application-level scheduling in virtual organizations of distributed computational environments with non-dedicated resources. Dependable job-flow management is implemented with the set of specific rules for resource usage. Strategies are based on economic scheduling models and diverse administration policies inside resource domains. Job management structures and economic mechanisms for load balancing in distributed environments are considered. Scheduling methods composing priority algorithms for parallel applications and job batch scheduling in distributed computing with non-dedicated resources are proposed.
