Applying Advance Reservation to Increase Predictability of WorkflowExecution on the Grid

In this paper we present an extension to devise and implement advance reservation as part of the scheduling and resource management services of the ASKALON Grid application development and runtime environment. The scheduling service has been enhanced to offer a list of resources that can execute a specific task and to negotiatewith the resource manager about resources capable of processing tasks in the shortest possible time. We introduce progressive reservation approach which tries to allocate resources based on a fair-share principle. Experiments are shown that demonstrate the effectiveness of our approach, and that reflect different QoS parameters including performance, predictability, resource usage and resource fairness.
