Grid flow control : prototype of a grid gateway based on network processors

Abstract : Due to network bandwidth growth, grid computing has been envisionned.As grids are aggregation of computer clusters based on highperformance local networks and interconnected by very high speed corenetworks, access links to core networks remain bottleneck locations. Inorder to optimize grid computing overall performance, we propose toorganize data transfers from one cluster to an other. This organizationmust allow ressource schedulers to schedule data transferts in additionof tasks. Based on a grid network resource reservation model this paperpresents the design f a grid gateway, located at the LAN/WAN interface.To implement this approach, we have develop a prototype basedon Network Processors Intel IXP2400 which is able to control flowsat 1 gigabits/s. We discuss the main design choices and experimental results
