7 David A. Lifka Chief Technical Officer Cornell Theory Center What makes one Job Scheduler better than another? Job Schedulers match resource requests to resources Job Schedulers provide mechanisms to implement policies Job Schedulers should be integrated with Resource Management Ease of Use & Administration Let the Database do the work Designed to perform tasks like resource matching Implementing Scheduling Algorithms and Policies is straight forward Ideal tool for Scalable Resource Management Don’t Reinvent what the Platform Provides Windows Server 2003 – Delegation & Impersonation Active Directory SQL Server Windows Management & Instrumentation Microsoft Message Queues Performance Alerts Identify “poison nodes” Node changes The Velocity Scheduler Motivation

9 David A. Lifka Chief Technical Officer Cornell Theory Center Gordon Bell, senior researcher at Microsoft's Bay Area Research Center, concurs. "This project demonstrates the potential of a new way to build applications and the potential for a new software industry structure based on delivering results," he said. "Users don't have to buy apps programs and maintain a more complex software environment; they simply call a program or database. This is one of the few projects that I would call a Web Service, and it is well beyond what is running on today's experimental Grid.“ Frederica Darema, Senior Science and Technology Advisor in the CISE Directorate at NSF, is the cognizant NSF official for the ASP project. "It is to the credit of the scientists working on this project that they have developed such a cohesive collaboration," she said. "I am pushing for a new paradigm in application simulation and measurement capabilities called Dynamic Data Driven Application Systems, and the ASP model of multidisciplinary collaboration, together with the technology advances made by the project, are essential for enabling this new paradigm. I am very pleased with the outcomes of this project and its broader impact."
