The Generic Grid Broker component acts as a meta-scheduler sitting on top of existing Grid middleware (such as Globus Toolkit, gLite, or UNICORE). Its role is to intelligently schedule the execution of jobs on the Grid with efficient and optimized management of resources. For example, as the Globus Toolkit cannot select by itself a remote resource on which to submit the job, it has to implement a meta-scheduler for handling some high-level decisions.
