Grid Computing: Second European AcrossGrids Conference, by Paul Graham, Matti Heikkurinen, Jarek Nabrzyski, Ariel

By Paul Graham, Matti Heikkurinen, Jarek Nabrzyski, Ariel Oleksiak (auth.), Marios D. Dikaiakos (eds.)

This ebook constitutes the completely refereed post-proceedings of the second one eu AcrossGrid convention, AxGrids 2004, held in Nicosia, Cyprus in January 2004.

The 27 revised complete papers and four revised brief papers offered have been rigorously chosen in the course of rounds of reviewing and development from fifty seven submissions. The papers tackle the whole variety of present issues in grid computing from computational and knowledge grids to the semantic grid and grid program in quite a few fields.

It is the main module that applies the scheduling policy and procedure based on the Runtime Estimator, and according to the deadlines of the jobs as they are given by the customer. 1 Runtime Estimation Model Resource Performance Parameters for Heterogeneous Platforms A generic PC architecture consists of a CPU, L1, L2 cache and RAM (memory hierarchy) and the hard disk. There are several different architectures for each of the above components and different operating systems. For the CPU performance the most suitable generic measurement is the MFLOPS benchmark [5].

Different applications are characterized by different properties and thus require different modeling and prediction schemes. In this paper, we enhance the current Grid architecture by incorporating all the aforementioned described mechanisms so as to allow guarantees of the diverse and contradictory users’ QoS requirements. Our focus is oriented on developing a proper runtime estimation model, which is the heart of any scheduling and resource allocation algorithm. In particular, we propose a scheme able to predict the runtime of submitted jobs for any given application on any given computer by introducing a general prediction model.
