Abstract:In this thesis, we describe the robust information acquisition techniques, software design, prototype implementation, and performance evaluation of a Java-based infrastructure for supporting large-scale parallel computing on the Internet. We present results on the projected cost and performance of large scale infrastructures, and show that, given current technologies, it is feasible to construct hierarchies with 25,000 WWW browsers and 600 WWW servers. In addition, we validate our performance/reliability models via experiments, show that the time scale of world view maintenance and task scheduling are on the order of minutes, and that prediction techniques can enable the maintenance of a distributed hierarchy for large scale application scheduling.
