Enhanced Accounting Scheme for Grid Computing Architecture
This research developed a modification to the Grid Accounting Scheme (GridBank) by formulating a model to enhance the scheme. The enhanced scheme was simulated and its performance was evaluated. Thiswas done with a view to eliminating the manual mode of processing as well as speed up transactions and reduce time delay. The PayPal layer was added to the existing three layers which enhanced the scheme to allow for the automation of the GridBank administration module. The enhanced scheme was formulated using the web service approach that allowed cross platform interoperability. The results of the simulation showed that as the number of users increased, the processing time gradually reduced for the enhanced scheme which made its processing delay to be reduced.
