Resource allocation is an important aspect of Grid computing. Over the past years, various systems have been developed which use market mechanisms to allocate resources. However, the performance of such policies has not been sufficiently studied. In this paper, we investigate under which circumstances market-based resource allocation by continuous double auctions and by the proportional share protocol, respectively, outperforms a conventional round-robin approach. We develop a model for
