In this article we present the GridBench, an extensible tool for benchmarking and testing Grid resources. We give an overview of the GridBench services and tools that provide easy invocation of benchmarks and management of results. We also show how the tool can be used in the analysis of results and how the measurements can be used to complement the information provided by Grid information services and used as a basis for resource selection. In order to illustrate the usage of the tool, we describe scenarios for using the GridBench framework and the GridBench "virtual workbench" to perform benchmarking experiments and analyze the results. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2005.
