Mapping of SLA-based workflows with light communication onto grid resources

Dang Minh Quan and Joern Altmann


Service Level Agreements (SLAs) are currently one of the major research topics in Grid Computing. Among those system components that support SLA-aware Grid jobs, the SLA mapping mechanism has an important position. It is responsible for assigning sub-jobs of the workflow to Grid resources in a way that meets the user's deadline and minimizes costs. Assuming many different kinds of sub-jobs and resources, the process of mapping an SLA-based workflow with light communication defines an unfamiliar and difficult problem. This paper presents a solution to this problem. The quality and efficiency of the algorithm is validated through performance measurements.
