One of the fundamental requirements of Grid computing is efficient and effective resource discovery mechanism. Resource discovery involves discovery of appropriate resources required by user applications. In this regard
various resource discovery mechanisms have been proposed during the recent
years. These mechanisms range from centralized to hierarchical information servers approach. Most of the techniques developed based on these approaches have scalability and fault tolerance limitations. To overcome these limitations Peer to Peer based discovery mechanisms are proposed.
