The selection of resources that best fitting tasks in grid environments is an essential and critical factor to system performance. Current resource selection methods apply traditional mechanisms for the process of task allocation to resources, which cause performance problems. This paper proposes a resource selection algorithm in bidding based grid environment to minimize the total time for task completion in effective and efficient way. To avoid unexpected completion time arises when using non-reserved bidding process due to the competition between grid clients on resources; the algorithm proposes the single reservation mechanism to reserve the best resource for the task as a commitment and hence guarantees the task completion time will be as expected.
