Hi John, you got it right. Yes please proceed with creating your proposal.

> Airavata assists science gateways to execute on multiple computational resources. To
efficiently schedule applications on resources, Airavata needs to understand application performance.
Applications are typically complex in terms of the models and algorithms they support and
internally implemented optimization of resources available. The hardware provides additional
variables in this optimization in terms of memory and computing units that can be allocated
and time restrictions in the form of queue limits. Scheduling adds to this complexity by implementing
policies toward enabling a particular Science domain and/or maximizing the usage of the resources
> Airavata can feed data from historical executions and a framework can be built to systematically
feed to new experiments (based on existing or totally newly devised models) executed. The
run and timing data then can be codified such that the information can be presented to the
user if an intelligent choice can be made by the user or can be used programmatically by Airavata
in cases where the user does not or cannot provide such a choice. 
> The end goal of this benchmark exercise will be to provide fastest execution time possible
accounting for constraints available in the gateway to optimize its own allocations for all
the users in the communities the gateway supports.
