The inevitable move from a single large scale server to a distributed Grid environment is beginning to be realized across international Grid test-bed like Pacific Rim Applications and Grid Middleware Assembly (PRAGMA). Although jobs submitted to a single large server have been widely analyzed, job characteristics in a Grid environment are different as we found in our analysis of jobs submitted in the PRAGMA Grid test-bed. This paper reports on the analysis of jobs submitted across the PRAGMA Grid test-bed. The job types are categorized and the runtime of jobs is captured, using the Multi- Organization Grid Accounting System (MOGAS), and analyzed. The number of jobs submitted across organizations, indicating the level of resource sharing among participants, is also captured by the system.
