2005 (English)In: First International Conference on e-Science and Grid Computing, 2005, 212-220 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
We present the architecture and implementation of a grid resource broker and job submission service, designed to be as independent as possible of the grid middleware used on the resources. The overall architecture comprises seven general components and a few conversion and integration points where all middleware-specific issues are handled. The implementation is based on state-of-the-art grid and Web services technology as well as existing and emerging standards (WSRF, JSDL, GLUE, WS-Agreement). Features provided by the service include advance reservations and a resource selection process based on a priori estimations of the total time to delivery for the application, including a benchmark-based prediction of the execution time. The general service implementation is based on the Globus Toolkit 4. For test and evaluation, plugins and format converters are provided for use with the NorduGrid ARC middleware
