In grid computing environments, network bandwidth discovery and allocation is a serious issue. Before their applications are running, grid users will need to choose hosts based on available bandwidth. Running applications may need to adapt to a changing set of hosts. Hence, a tool is needed for monitoring network performance that is integral to the grid environment. To address this need, Gloperf was developed as part of the Globus grid computing toolkit. Gloperf is designed for ease of… CONTINUE READING
