Advanced Grid Management Software for Seamless Services


Even though common Grid Management Software, like Condor or the SUN Grid Engine, features sophisticated functionality to execute and observe jobs on a computing Grid, it often lacks a comprehensive support for multi-modal access, security, accounting and advanced messaging. To tackle these shortcomings, we introduce the concept of an agent-based Advanced Grid Management Software. Our approach envisions a multi-agent architecture serving as an additional access and management layer which is set on top of conventional Grid Management Software implementations. Agents remedy the aforementioned deficiencies by providing value-added services which extend the basic functionalities of the underlying Grid. An agent-based service platform for multi-modal access features an enhanced user interface to the functionality offered by the Advanced Grid Management Software.
