Building Online Performance Models of Grid Middleware with Fine-Grained Load-Balancing: A Globus Toolkit Case Study [chapter]

Ramon Nou, Samuel Kounev, Jordi Torres
Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we present a novel case study with the Globus Toolkit in which we show how performance models can be generated dynamically and used to provide online performance prediction capabilities.  ...  We have augmented the Grid middleware with an online performance prediction component that can be called at any time during operation to predict the Grid performance for a given resource allocation and  ...  We acknowledge the support of our colleague Ferran Julià from the Technical University of Catalonia in resolving many technical issues.  ...
