The usage of static timeslots is a well-known approach to handling advance reservations in the scope of Grid resource management. In this paper we enhance the timeslot-based approach by introducing dynamic timeslots and the notion of granularity. The main contribution is the development of an analytical model of the interrelation between user and system parameters in order to describe their impact on sys tem ef´Čüciency and responsiveness.
