Resource allocation for query processing in grid systems: A survey
MetadataShow full item record
Grid systems are very useful platforms for distributed databases, especially in some situations in which the scale of data sources and user requests is very high. However, the main characteristics of grid systems such as dynamicity, large size and heterogeneity, bring new problems to the query processing domain such as resource discovery and resource allocation. In this paper, we provide a survey related to resource allocation methods for query processing In data grid systems. We provide a classification for existing studies considering their approaches to the resource allocation problem. We provide a synthesis of the studies and propose evaluations and comparisons for the different classes of studies. ©2012 CRL Publishing Ltd.
