Abstract
Grid information dissemination protocols distribute infor-
mation about the dynamic state of computational resources
throughout interconnected wide area Grids. Performance
metrics for these protocols include the overhead of informa-
tion packets, and the accuracy of the information at the time
it is used to schedule applications. Our previous work ad-
vocated non-uniform protocols to keep dissemination local
to the information source, as a method of keeping overhead
manageable while achieving adequate freshness and accu-
racy. This paper considers the problem of providing better
control over the dissemination of information and influenc-
ing the "coverage footprint" that defines where the infor-
