The OurGrid distributed environment is an open source grid middleware that enables the creation of P2P computational grids to speed up the execution of bag-of-tasks applications. Bag-of-tasks is an application model composed of several independent tasks not communicating with each other during their execution, tolerating network delays and faults. The paper shows that the main advantage to avoid bottlenecks is if the data gets larger or computations become more complex and the conclusion is made based on the presented measurements. Understanding such patterns sheds an insightful light on performance bottlenecks and design tradeoffs for P2P Grid applications

Keywords: grid computing system; performance of parallel applications
