The basic objective of grid computing is to support resource sharing among individuals and institutions within a networked infrastructure. Managing various resources in highly dynamic grid environments is a complex and challenging problem. Some approaches apply algorithms for resource management to grid but fails to provide any generalized solutions. Most of the approaches are based on a simple architecture considering computer as the main resource. But the real architecture of grid computing is a complex one especially if the authors consider various resources of a computer (e.g., processor, memory etc.) during resource management.
