Paper Abstract

Recently, some solutions (such as UCLP, GARA and GridJIT, etc.) have been proposed to manage optical network resources as other grid resources. However, most of them do not consider optical network resources as general grid resources to schedule and share, and fatally they are not compatible with the new developed resource management framework WSRF (Web Service Resource Framework) within the global grid architecture OGSA. Besides, there are some other problems in the resources scheduling and sharing. This paper presents the economic-based grid-enabled management architecture for lightpath resources GRACIE, which improved the GRACE with the ability of scheduling and managing optical resources. Based on GRACIE, it proposed lightpath resource pricing algorithm and lightpath request scheduling scheme. Finally, we demonstrated their effectiveness by experiments on GridSim.
