On the Design of Job Scheduling Strategy Using Agent Replication for Computational Grids


T. Altameem


Vol. 11  No. 3  pp. 269-276


This paper is to consider the scheduling of jobs to the resources in grid networks. In this paper, a scheduling system for computational grids with a mobile-agent based method is proposed. The main contribution of this work is to maximize throughput and minimize the entire response time of executing user applications. The proposed system is compared with a scheduling system that uses a recent scheduling algorithm in terms of response time and grid load. The simulation experiments show that the proposed system can lead to performance improvements.
