Grid computing is a promising technology that involves coordinate and involvement of resources to carry out multifarious computational problems. One of the major issues in distributed systems is to design of an efficient dynamic load balancing algorithm that improves the overall performance of the distributed systems. Scheduling and resource management plays a decisive role in achieving high utilization of resources in grid computing environments. Load balancing is the process of distributing the load among various nodes of a distributed system to improve both job response time and resource utilization while also avoiding a situation where some of the nodes are heavily loaded while other nodes are idle or lightly loaded. The GridSim toolkit allows modeling and simulation of entities in parallel and distributed computing systems-users, applications, resources, and resource schedulers for design and evaluation of scheduling algorithms.
