AdaptiveWorkload Allocation in Query Processing in Autonomous Heterogeneous Environments

Executive Summary

The increasing prevalence of networked storage and computational resources, along with middleware for managing resource access and sharing, raises the prospect that queries can be run over resources obtained on demand, rather than on dedicated infrastructures. However, the movement of query processing into non-dedicated environments means that it is necessary to take account of the partial information and unstable conditions that characterise autonomous, shared, distributed settings. Thus, query processing on grid platforms needs to be adaptive, revising evaluation strategies at query run-time in response to the evolving environment, such as changes to machine load and availability.
