Abstract

Disclosed is a mechanism for measuring the available unused resources in highly dynamic networks with special focus on the available but unused computing power. The knowledge of the unused but available computing power allows for a planned usage of those resources for additional work. This work could be a task in a dynamic grid computing network, for example.
