Resource Management Challenges introduced by the GRID
- Heteregenous Resources and Substrate
- Each site has systems with different architectures (SMPs, Clusters.Linux/NT/Unix./Intel)
- each resource owners have their own policies or scheduling mechanisms (Codine/Condor).
- Policity Extensibility (through resource brokers)
- Resource Allocation/Coallocation
- Online Control (can Apps (Graphics) tolerate nonavailablity of required resource and adapt itself)
