Current implementations of Grid infrastructures provide frameworks which aim at achieve on-demand computing. In such a scenario, contribution and use of resources will be governed by business models. The challenge is to provide multi-level performance information which enables the participation of the different actors in such a system. In this paper we describe the performance measuring framework developed for Grid Market Middleware, a middleware which supports economic-model based selection of service-oriented Grid applications. This middleware is a distributed infrastructure, which we have implemented for providing a market of services and resources to be assigned to Grid applications. The objectives of the performance measuring framework is first to assess the behaviour of the middleware and the used economic models in a deployed system, and secondly allow the provision of metrics for the components of the middleware itself. We describe the design of the performance measuring framework, its implementation and show its capability and usefulness for our objectives by experiments.
