Abstract
Grid technologies enable the sharing of a wide variety of distributed resources. To utilize these
resources, effective Resource Management systems are needed. Resource Management system
performs resource discovery to obtain information about the available resources. However, the
complex and dynamic nature of grid resources make sharing and discovery, a challenging issue.
Resource Discovery is initiated by a network application to find suitable resources with in the Grid.
Resource Discovery process is critical for efficient resource allocation and management. For
making the Resource Discovery more efficient and reliable large numbers of Approaches are there.
This paper analyses some of existing Approaches for Resource Discovery, which can search for the
preferred resources quickly and efficiently (return the correct results quickly and reduce network
complexity) in Grid computing. Finally a qualitative comparison between these Approaches based
on the factors that affect Grid Resource Discovery process, has been done and results are
presented.
