Performance analysis of a semantics enabled service registry

Fang, Weijian, Wong, Sylvia C, Tan, Victor, Miles, Simon and Moreau, Luc (2005) Performance analysis of a semantics enabled service registry At 4th UK e-Science All Hands Meeting (AHM). 19 - 22 Sep 2005.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Service discovery is a critical task in service-oriented architectures such as the Grid and Web Services. In this paper, we study a semantics enabled service registry, GRIMOIRES, from a performance perspective. GRIMOIRES is designed to be the registry for myGrid and the OMII software distribution. We study the scalability of GRIMOIRES against the amount of information that has been published into it. The methodology we use and the data we present are helpful for researchers to understand the performance characteristics of the registry and, more generally, of semantics enabled service discovery. Based on this experimentation, we claim that GRIMOIRES is an efficient semantics-aware service discovery engine.
