Effective job scheduling scheme is a crucial part of complex heterogeneous distributed systems. Gang scheduling is a scheduling algorithm for grid systems that schedules related grid jobs to run simultaneously on servers in different local sites. In this paper, we address grid jobs (gangs) schedule modeling using Stochastic reward nets (SRNs), which is concerned for static and dynamic scheduling policies. SRN is an extension of Stochastic Petri Net (SPN) and provides compact modeling facilities for system analysis. Threshold queue is adopted to smooth the variations of performance measures. System throughput and response time are compared and analyzed by giving reward measures in SRNs.
