Striking progress of network technology is making high-performance global computing possible. Several high-performance global computing systems have been proposed. Each of these systems proposes to effectively achieve high-performance with some efficient job scheduling scheme. Although these scheduling systems offer software mechanisms for resource location and scheduling, scheduling algorithms on these systems have not been discussed well. Furthermore, although an appropriate performance evaluation model is necessary to accommodate effective scheduling schemes, models for job scheduling in global computing systems have not been well established. This paper proposes a performance evaluation model for effective job scheduling in global computing systems. The proposed model represents a global computing system by a queueing network, in which servers and networks are represented by queueing systems. Currently, our evaluation results of the proposed model show that the model can simulate behavior of an actual global computing system and job scheduling on the system effectively.
