Report on the Second Prototype of a Distributed Supercomputing API for the Grid
Sprache des Titels:
We participate in the Austrian Grid Phase 2 within the frame of the activity "Grid Research". We deal with development of a distributed programming tool for grid computing which shall empower applications to perform scheduling decisions on their own, utilizing the information about the grid environment in order to adapt the algorithmic structure to the particular situation. Our goal is to design and implement a software framework and an API that can be used for developing grid-distributed parallel programs without leaving the level of the language in which the core application is written. The planned solution will be able to eliminate some algorithmic challenges of nowadays grid programming. In this paper, we report on the second prototype of our topology-aware software system extended with the description of our newly developed scheduling algorithm.
