1. Abstract
Managing a large collection of networked
machines, with a series of incoming jobs,
requires that the jobs be assigned to machines
wisely. A new approach to this problem is
presented, inspired by economic principles: the
Cost­Benefit Framework. This framework
simplifies complex assignment and admission
control decisions, and performs well in
practice. We demonstrate this framework in
the context of an Internet­wide market for
computational services and verify its utility for
a classic network of workstations.
