This contribution presents algorithms, methods, and software for a Grid resource manager, responsible for resource brokering and scheduling in early production Grids. The broker selects computing resources based on actual job requirements and a number of criteria identifying the available resources, with the aim to minimize the total time to delivery for the individual application. The total time to delivery includes the time for program execution, batch queue waiting, input/output data transfer, and executable staging. Main features of the resource manager include advance reservations, resource selection based on computer benchmark results and network performance predictions, and a basic adaptation facility.
