Planning on the Grid: A Status Report (DRAFT PPDG-20)


Traditional batch job schedulers are a poor fit for a grid computing environment. In order to respond to the grid scheduling challenges, the client must perform planning. In this paper, we expound upon the differences between planning versus scheduling, and present two grid projects which utilize a ClassAd matchmaking framework to enable planning on the grid. Planning for purposes of job placement within the EU DataGrid and DZero SAMGrid projects will be explored.
