Abstract—As a newly emerged distributed computing platform, the Gird aims at the implementation of resources sharing and collaborative computing on the internet. Research on grid resource scheduling algorithm is one of the core problems of grid technology, as well as an essential part of grid resource management. Resource scheduling in grid environment refers to the application of tasks scheduling algorithm to assign the works in the grid to the right resources. During the allocation process, the computing performance of grid resource nodes, communication parameters and loading balance, etc., shall be put into consideration. Since they are all dynamic for both the grid resources and the grid resource nodes, requirements on grid resource scheduling algorithm are relatively higher if compared to those existing parallel resource scheduling algorithm. Based on the Min-Min scheduling algorithm, the OPTMin- Min scheduling algorithm is presented to overcome the drawbacks. Upon the basis of applying Min-Min prescheduling into stage one, by adapting the strategy of tworounds scheduling, the assignment on heavy load resources are rescheduled to balance the load. Actual cases are used to illustrate the superiority of OPT-Min-Min scheduling algorithm to the Min-Min scheduling algorithm. Simulation experiments were carried out to the batch grid resource scheduling algorithms including Min-Min, Max-Min, Minmean and OPT-Min-Min. According to the ETC generation technique used in experimental benchmarks, ETC matrix was generated. By the comparing and analyzing the Min- Min, Max-Min and Min-mean scheduling algorithm, the validity of OPT-Min-Min scheduling algorithm is proved.
