Abstract

Grid QoS Job Equalizer is based around grid customers wanting to optimize performance on the grid and attain some level of quality of service. Grid QoS Job Equalizer can determine if the same job on one computer is far out pacing the same job on another computer and automatically bring the later computer's job progress equal to the progressive computers level. The idea being that the ebb and flow of grid performance can lead to any given computer performing better throughout the life cycle of the job. The Grid QoS Job Equalizer accelerates all computers running this job to the level of the best performing computer at that moment in time.
