dc.description.abstractThis paper describes a novel, pipelined resource management architecture for computational grids. The design is based on two key realizations. One is that resource management involves a sequence of tasks that is best handled by a pipeline. As shown in the paper, this approach results, in a scalable architecture for decentralized scheduling. The other realization is that static aggregation of resources for improved scheduling is inadequate in wide-area computing environments because the needs of users and jobs change with both, location and time. The described architecture addresses this problem by dynamically aggregating resources in a manner that continuously optimizes system response. This is accomplished by way of an active yellow pages directory that allows aggregation constraints to be (re)defined on the fly. An initial prototype of the active yellow pages service has been deployed in the PUNCH network computing environment. Experiences with the production PUNCH system and preliminary results from controlled experiments indicate that the active yellow pages service performs well.
