Grid computing, Grid resource management and scheduling, multicriteria decision support
In the paper we present two different models of Grid resource management problems: (i) Grid scheduling problems with no time characteristics available, and (ii) scheduling of jobs in presence of time characteristics achieved by using some prediction techniques, and resource reservation mechanisms. We focus on demonstrating how these two scenarios, which are important examples of Grid environments, can be modeled as multi-criteria decision support problems. We also discuss advantages and disadvantages of these models as well as practical applications.
