Abstract: This study aims to increase the productivity of grid systems by an improved scheduling method. A brief overview and analysis of the main scheduling methods in grid systems are presented. A method for increasing efficiency by optimizing the task graph structure considering the grid system node structure is proposed. Task granularity (the ratio between the amount of computation and transferred data) is considered to increase the efficiency of planning. An analysis of the impact on task scheduling efficiency in a grid system is presented. A correspondence of the task graph structure considering the node structure (in which the task is immersed) to the effectiveness of scheduling in a grid system is shown. A modified method for scheduling tasks while considering their granularity is proposed. The relevant algorithm for task scheduling in a grid system is developed. Simulation of the proposed algorithm using the modeling system GridSim is conducted. A comparative analysis between the modified algorithm and the algorithm of the hierarchical scheduler Maui is shown. The general advantages and disadvantages of the proposed algorithm are discussed.
