A Computational grid is highly useful computing infrastructure that enables effective access of resources to perform high performance computing wherein job management, efficient resource utilization are key grid service issues. To make grid environment greatly useful, an optimized scheduling system is essential as computational grid is often heterogeneous with complex environment. This complexity raises difficulties in gathering the load information of computational resources as well as coping up with user needs specifically when users dealt with jobs. Other existing fact of grid computing is that it is best known for handling batch job rather than interactive job submission. Interactive Job submission is useful in situations when a job requires human intervention to control the job result.
