An Analysis of different Scheduling Approaches used in Grid Computing

Authors(3) :-Aman Baria, Dharam Singh Meena, Raksha Pandey

Grid computing is considered as a very high performance computing environment to solve complex computational problems. It comprises of job scheduling, security, resource management, information management. The scheduling concept is needed for better management of resources. Scheduling refers to order of jobs which satisfy the metrics like satisfaction of user, completion time etc. Better scheduling policy in grid computing helps in improving performance, computational cost, load balancing and increases reliability and availability of resources. This paper end up with brief description of existing scheduling algorithms by considering different metrics used to prove importance of existing techniques.
