Abstract
This paper describes the design and implementation of
SWORD, a scalable resource discovery service for wide-
area distributed systems. In contrast to previous sys-
tems, SWORD allows users to describe desired resources
as a topology of interconnected groups with required intra-
group, inter-group, and per-node characteristics, along
with the utility that the application derives from vari-
ous ranges of values of those characteristics. This de-
sign gives users the flexibility to find geographically dis-
