Abstract

Many current international scientific projects are based on large scale applications that are both computationally complex and require the management of large amounts of distributed data. Grid computing is fast emerging as the solution to the problems posed by these applications. To evaluate the impact of resource optimisation algorithms, simulation of the Grid environment can be used to achieve important performance results before any algorithms are deployed on the Grid. In this paper, we study the effects of various job scheduling and data replication strategies and compare them in a variety of Grid scenarios using several performance metrics. We use the Grid simulator OptorSim, and base our simulations on a world-wide Grid testbed for data intensive high energy physics experiments. Our results show that scheduling algorithms which take into account both the file access cost of jobs and the workload of computing resources are the most effective at optimising computing and storage resources as well as improving the job throughput. The results also show that, in most cases, the economybased replication strategies which we have developed improve the Grid performance under changing network loads. © 2004 Kluwer Academic Publishers.
