Abstract: This paper is motivated by Grid computing where scheduling will generally be performed remotely from servers. Unlike a cluster, the information used to inform a distributed scheduler cannot be constantly updated as the communication cost would be too great. As such, the scheduler makes routing choices based on longer term quantities. The system is studied using a Markov finite capacity queueing model where servers suffer periodic failures and undergo subsequent repair. Failures are not identified immediately and job loss may result from sending to broken servers. Two strategies are proposed and their relative performance is compared.
