Gossip Protocol, Cloud Computing, Grid Computing


"Grid" computing has emerged as an important new field, distinguished from conventional distributed computing by its focus on large-scale resource sharing, innovative applications, and in some cases, high-performance orientation. In this article, we define this new field. First, we review the "Grid problem," which we define as flexible, secure, coordinated resource sharing among dynamic collections of individuals, institutions, and resources. In Grid computing, resource scheduling & management have always an issue. To achieve high query satisfaction rate, randomness, less overhead, load balancing and many others is priority to increase performance. In this scenario Gossip protocol may provide the solution to the resource scheduling problem. Gossip protocol is of three type Epidemic gossip protocol, pairwise gossip protocol and adaptive dissemination protocol. Epidemic Gossip protocol disseminates information to multiple neighbors while pairwise gossip protocol disseminates information to limited subset. Pairwise protocol works best for uniform load distribution. In Adaptive dissemination configuration have been made by getting results from both epidemic and pairwise gossip protocol. There are three performance criteria according to which this protocol has been tested Query satisfaction rate, packet overhead & requester distance.
