With the increasing need for networked applications and distributed resource sharing, there is a strong incentive for an open large-scale service infrastructure operating over multidomain and multi-technology networks. Distributed computing such as peer-to-peer networks, promise a distributed computing infrastructure that can provide globally available network resources. The network size and complexity continue to increase dynamically. Huge number and heterogeneous nature of computing resources

Discovering resources in a Grid environment is complex due to the heterogeneous nature and dynamic availability of resources and are owned by different individuals and organizations, each having their own resource management policies and different access and cost models. The motivation behind this paper is to explore the various resource discovery mechanisms that have been designed and implemented with a variety of algorithms and approaches.
