An Accounting and QoS Model for Grid Computing
The introduction of economic approaches into grid computing helps resolve some challenging problems in this research area. In this paper, following an account system we present an accounting and QoS model based on T.G., a market-oriented grid computing system with fine-grained parallelism. Our model takes into account some economic factors and also the characteristics of users’ behavior so as to build a practical and flexible subsystem whereby T.G. could improve its overall performance and throughput and each participant could benefit himself as much as possible.
