Programmable Grids Framework Enabling QoS in an OGSA Context [chapter]

John Soldatos, Lazaros Polymenakos, George Kormentzas
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Managing QoS across a Grid infrastructure is particularly complex since QoS must be addressed at three different levels: network, middleware and application.  ...  In this paper we elaborate on the importance of network, middleware and application level QoS, and accordingly provide a framework for designing and implementing programmable APIs that can handle QoS.  ...  Grid services relating to middleware QoS can also be registered with an Index Service (e.g., GT3 MDS) to allow scheduling applications to query for services based on Service Data parameters.  ...

2007 Sixth International Conference on Grid and Cooperative Computing (GCC 2007)  
This study provides a classification of existing software system based on their underlying policies, a systematic understanding of QoS, and a framework for QoS of Grid computing.  ...  The non-deterministic characteristic of the resource availability in these new computing platforms raises an outstanding challenge: how to support Quality of Service (QoS) to meet a user's demand?  ...  In an opposite direction, in Legion and Globus, resources can be reserved for the execution of Grid tasks based on service-level agreements [3] .  ...

A taxonomy and survey of grid resource management systems for distributed computing

Klaus Krauter, Rajkumar Buyya, Muthucumaru Maheswaran
2002 Software, Practice & Experience  
Such resource requests are considered as jobs by the Grid. Depending on the application, the job may specify quality of service (QoS) requirements or accept best-effort service levels.  ...  The RMSs in the federation should interoperate using an agreed set of protocols to manage the resources. Applications may either directly or indirectly request resources from the Grid.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The authors would like to acknowledge all developers of the Grid systems described in the paper.  ...

End-to-End QoS Support for a Medical Grid Service Infrastructure

Siegfried Benkner, Gerhard Engelbrecht, Stuart E. Middleton, Ivona Brandic, Rainer Schmidt
2007 New generation computing  
Quality of Service support is an important prerequisite for the adoption of Grid technologies for medical applications.  ...  Within GEMSS, parallel applications installed on clusters or other HPC hardware may be exposed as QoS-aware Grid services for which clients may dynamically negotiate QoS constraints with respect to response  ...  The QoS infrastructure relies on a reservation based approach to QoS coupled with application specific performance models, advance reservation mechanisms, and client-driven negotiation of service level  ...

Grid Quality of Service Trustworthiness Evaluation Based on Bayesian Network

Yiling Huang
2020 IEEE Access  
The study results of this paper provide a reference for the further researches on the grid QoS trustworthiness evaluation based on Bayesian network.  ...  Quality of Service (QoS) is applied to evaluate the satisfaction level of users using a service and it is a measure and evaluation of the service level of service providers.  ...  control mechanisms and methods; the upper layer is grid middleware QoS, which provides QoS-described execution environment, QoS-based scheduling environment, and QoS-based resource management environment  ...
