Abstract

Computational grids are increasingly being used for executing large multi-component scientific applications. The most widely reported advantages of application execution on grids are the performance benefits, in terms of speeds, problem sizes or quality of solutions, due to increased number of processors. We explore the possibility of improved performance on grids without increasing the application’s processor space. For this, we consider grids with multiple batch systems. We explore the challenges involved in and the advantages of executing long-running multi-component applications on multiple batch sites with a popular multi-component climate simulation application, CCSM, as the motivation.We have performed extensive simulation studies to estimate the single and multi-site execution rates of the applications for different system characteristics.Our experiments show that in many cases, multiple batch executions can have better execution rates than a single site execution.
