The Grid 2. Blueprint for a New Computing Infrastructure

The Grid is an rising infrastructure that would essentially swap the best way we expect about-and use-computing. The observe Grid is utilized by analogy with the electrical strength grid, which gives pervasive entry to electrical energy and has had a dramatic effect on human features and society. Many think that by means of permitting all parts of our details know-how infrastructure-computational features, databases, sensors, and people-to be shared flexibly as precise collaborative instruments the Grid could have an analogous reworking impression, permitting new sessions of purposes to emerge.

Sample text

There is also a set of machines on which nodes can execute (with a different execution cost on each machine) and which need different time to transmit data. A machine can execute only one task at a time, and a task cannot start execution until all data from its parent nodes is available. The scheduling problem is to assign the tasks onto machines so that precedence constraints are respected and the makespan is minimized. For an example, see Figure 1, and parts (a), (b), and (c). Previous work has attempted to characterize the robustness of a schedule; in other words, how robust the schedule would be if variations in the estimates used to build the schedule were to occur at run-time [1,3].

Section 4 evaluates the performance of the policy and, finally, Section 5 concludes the paper. 2 Preliminaries The model used in this paper to represent an application is the directed acyclic graph (DAG), where nodes (or tasks) represent computation and edges represent communication (data flow) between nodes. The DAG has a single entry node and a single exit node. There is also a set of machines on which nodes can execute (with a different execution cost on each machine) and which need different time to transmit data.
