Peer-to-Peer Protocols for Resource Discovery in the Grid

Grid, Peer-to-Peer networks, SRDM, and QRDM.


One of the basic services in the Grid is resource discovery. When a user request services, he gives a set of attributes that should be satisfied by a candidate resource. The re source discovery mechanism returns a set of best resources for the given set of attributes. We present two P2P proto cols for resource discovery: the Query Resource Discov ery Mechanism (QRDM), and the Seeking Resource Dis covery Mechanism (SRDM). They are based on the main characteristics of P2P systems: decentralization and self organization.
