Abstract: Grid is a new distributed heterogeneous computing platform, which attracts many researchers. The allocation of tasks to distributed resources is crucial to grid application. So, Grid Task Scheduling (GTS) becomes the key issue of grid computing, and its algorithm has a direct effect on the performance of the whole grid system. In this paper, we summarise the most popular GTS algorithms, including traditional GTS, heuristic intelligent GTS and DAG-based GTS, separately. Furthermore, the comparative analysis is made among them. Finally, some main research directs of GTS are pointed out.
