Abstract: - Information aggregation is a solution for reducing information being interchanged between Grid networks. Resource manager consider the scheduling decisions by using this aggregated information. Aggregated information is kept across each node and the detailed information is kept private, but the resources are available publicly for use. This paper gives an idea on aggregating resource information which includes the failure factor of resources along with other parameters like computational capacity, task queued in each resources and the time availability of the resources and its implementation details. Aggregating this information will help in scheduling the task to each of the resources in an efficient way, so that the task completion will not be hindered.
