A Survey on Dynamic Job Scheduling in Grid Environment Based on Heuristic Algorithms
Computational Grids are a new trend in distributed computing systems. They allow the sharing of geographically distributed resources in an efficient way, extending the boundaries of what the authors perceive as distributed computing. Various sciences can benefit from the use of grids to solve CPU-intensive problems, creating potential benefits to the entire society. Job scheduling is an integrated part of parallel and distributed computing. It allows selecting correct match of resource for a particular job and thus increases the job throughput and utilization of resources. Job should be scheduled in an automatic way to make the system more reliable, accessible and less sensitive to subsystem failures.
