Performance Evolution of Dynamic Replication in a Data Grid using DMDR Algorithm
International Journal of Engineering Research and
Data replication in data grids is an efficient technique that aims to improve response time, reduce the bandwidth consumption and maintain reliability. In this context, a lot of work is done and many strategies have been proposed. Unfortunately, most of existing replication techniques are based on single file granularity and neglect correlation among different data files. Indeed, file correlations become an increasingly important consideration for performance enhancement in data grids. In fact,

In fact, the analysis of real data intensive grid applications reveals that job requests for groups of correlated files and suggests that these correlations can be exploited for improving the effectiveness of replication strategies. In this paper, we propose a new dynamic data replication strategy, called DMDR, which consider a set of files as granularity. Our strategy gathers files according to a relationship of simultaneous accesses between files by jobs and stores correlated files at the same site. In order to find out these correlations data mining field is introduced. We choose the allconfidence as correlation measure.
