Agent-Based Grid Load Balancing Using Performance-Driven Task Scheduling

  title={Agent-Based Grid Load Balancing Using Performance-Driven Task Scheduling},
  author={Junwei Cao and Daniel P. Spooner and Stephen A. Jarvis and Subhash Saini and Graham R. Nudd},
Load balancing is a key concern when developing parallel and distributed computing applications. The emergence of computational grids extends this problem, where issues of cross-domain and large-scale scheduling must also be considered. In this work an agent-based grid management infrastructure is coupled with a performance-driven task scheduler that has been developed for local grid load balancing. Each grid scheduler utilises predictive application performance data and an iterative heuristic… CONTINUE READING
