Automated resource exchange and negotiation between participants of a Virtual Organization, or Peers of a Peer-to-Peer Grid, is an important feature of Grid computing because it enables scalable cooperation be- tween entities under separate administrative control. Automated nego- tiation and accounting of resource consumption have been studied, and market-based resource exchange methods have been proposed. How- ever, there currently exist few simulators of resource exchange account- ing or actual Grid middlewares supporting negotiation with automated resource usage accounting between separate entities. We propose a Lightweight Bartering Grid (LBG) architecture suitable to the devel- opment of Peer-to-Peer Grids based on bartering (i.e. automated and accounted resource exchange), where Peers model their environment. We present the LBG architecture as well as a simulator and a middle- ware under development that both instantiate it.
