Abstract : As both resources and applications are becoming more complex, resource management also becomes a more challenging task. For example, scheduling code-coupling applications on federations of clusters such as Grids results in complex resource selection algorithms. The abstractions provided by current Resource Management Systems (RMS) - usually rigid jobs or advance reservations - are insufficient to enable such applications to efficiently select resources. This paper studies an RMS architecture that delegates resource selection to applications while the RMS still keeps control over the resources. The proposed architecture is evaluated using a simulator which is then validated with a proof-of-concept implementation. Results show that such a system is feasible and performs well with respect to fairness and scalability.
