Resource allocation algorithm for a relational join operator in grid systems
MetadataShow full item record
Grid systems become very popular during the last decade because of their rapidly increasing computational capabilities. On the other hand, the advances on different domains cause enormous increase in the scale of the manipulated data. This issue augments the importance of distributed query processing and causes researchers to port their underlying environment onto the grid systems. However the dynamicity, heterogeneity and large scale characteristics of grid systems pose new problems for the distributed query processing domain. Resource allocation for query processing in grid systems is one of these problems, which attracts many researchers' attention. In this paper, we propose a new resource allocation algorithm for one relational join operator in a query considering characteristics of the grid systems. We provide theoretical analyses of the proposed algorithm and we consolidate analyses with the simulations. Copyright © 2012 ACM.
