Due to the dynamic nature and uncertainty of grid computing, system reliability can become very unpredictable. Thus, a well-defined scheduling mechanism that provides high system availability for grid applications is required. In this letter, we propose a SLA-constrained policy-based scheduling mechanism to enhance system performance in grid. Also, we implement the proposed model and show that our policy-based scheduling mechanism can guarantee high system availability as well as support load balancing on an experimental basis.
