Conference paper

The idea of metacomputing is very promising as it enables the use of a network of many independent computers as if they were one large parallel machine, or virtual supercomputer for solving large-scale problems in science, engineering, and commerce [2][6]. With the exponential growth of global computer ownership, local networks and Internet connectivity, this concept has been taken to a global level popularly called as grid computing. This, coupled with the fact that desktop PCs (personal computers) in corporate and home environments are heavily underutilized – typically only one-tenth of processing power is used – has given rise to interest in harnessing these underutilized resources (e.g., CPU cycles) of desktop PCs connected over the Internet [7][9].
