  • GridWay core is responsible for job execution management and resource brokering, providing advanced scheduling, and job failure & recovery capabilities.
    • The Dispatch Manager performs all submission stages and watches over the efficient execution of jobs.
    • The Information Manager, through its MADs (Middleware Access Driver), is responsible for host discovery and monitoring.
    • The Execution Manager, through its MADs, is responsible job execution and management.
