Auction allocation of computing resources

Standard methods for allocating computing resources normally employ schedulers and either queue or priority schemes. Alternative methods utilizing marketlike processes are being investigated, with direct applicability to evolving distributed systems. In this article, we present results of simulations of an auction allocation is which computing tasks are provided sufficient intelligence to acquire resources by offering, bidding, and exchanging them for funds.
