A computational grid is an emerging computing infrastructure that enables effective access to high performance computing resources. Service discovery is one of the most important research issues of grid computing. However, traditional service discovery algorithms are not suitable for grid environment due to the facts of inherited decentralization and loose coupling of grid application itself. To address this problem, the authors in the paper analyze the limitation of those traditional algorithms, and present a novel grid oriented service discovery algorithm, namely DSDA, which is essentially decentralized.
