Abstract: A common requirement of computational grids is the need to describe tasks and resources to facilitate scheduling. This paper describes the features necessary for successful task management, contrasts various existing approaches, and proposes a unified extensible description language. A new syntax is presented which addresses the symmetry of task and resource matching, embedded authorization information, billing, temporality, and task life-cycle management. This syntax is the basis for generic, scalable, grid process management. It has been developed from experience of high-volume task management in the CERN-based LHCb particle physics experiment.
