Job scheduling is used to schedule the user jobs to appropriate resources in grid environment. The goal of scheduling is that it achieves highest possible system throughput and match the application need with the available computing resources. In this paper, we will review the definition of grid computing, types of Grids, framework of Grid scheduling and characteristics of Computational Grid. Grid is a system in which machines are distributed across various organizations. Grid computing is a form of distributed computing. It involves sharing of resources that are heterogeneous and geographically distributed to solve various complex problems and develop large scale applications. Grid computing is broad in its domain of application and raises research questions that span many areas of distributed computing and of computer science in general. In this paper, we will explain job scheduling and resource scheduling algorithms that will benefit the researchers to carry out their further work in this area of research.
