This paper presents coordinated virtual partition (CVP) for Grid computing systems. The CVP is a way for regulating the resources supplied to different components of an application in unison according to an agreed relative proportion. This study shows that coordinated resource provisioning has several benefits including: (a) reducing the wait times experienced by an application and (b) improving the overall application performance by reducing the wait times. The CVP achieves these benefits by releas ing resources from "fast" running application components that can be reallocated by the Grid for other applications.
