Review on Grid Task Scheduling in Distributed Heterogeneous Environment

Computational grid is a potential technology mainly used for distributed environment. The major issues related with Grid are resource discovery, heterogeneity, fault tolerance and task scheduling. Grid task scheduling is an integrated component of computing which effectively utilizes the idle time of resources. Efficient scheduling algorithm is needed to utilize the resources effectively and reduce the overall completion time. This paper analyzes the performance of scheduling algorithms from different point of view such as makespan, execution time, completion time and load balancing. First, the general view of World Wide Web grid computing environment and its functions are discussed.
