Workflow optimisation through service selection

Walker, David William 2007. Workflow optimisation through service selection. Presented at: Workshop on Workflow Optimization in Distributed Environments, Edinburgh, UK, 19-20 October 2006.

Full text not available from this repository.


This talk presents an approach to dynamic workflow management and optimisation using performance data. We discuss strategies for choosing an optimal service (based on user specified criteria) from several semantically equivalent Web Services. Such an approach involves finding “similar” services, by first pruning the set of discovered services based on service metadata, and subsequently selecting an optimal service based on data recorded during prior executions of a service and/or current machine loads. We describe the current implementation of the system, and demonstrate this by a BLAST (used in BioInformatics for Protein-alignment) example by using the Ganglia monitoring tool to get performance data.
