We present a distributed matchmaking methodology based on a two-level
(low-level and application-level) benchmarking, that allows
the specification of both syntactic and performance requirements. In particular,
we point out how the use of application-level benchmarks gives a more accurate
characterization of resources, so enabling a better exploitation of Grid power.
The proposed methodology relies on the use of standard
description languages at both application and resource sides, to foster
interoperability. Moreover, the proposed tool is independent of the underlying
middleware, and its distributed structure supports scalability.
