Problem statement: To check the suitability of real time data intensive applications in a global grid network. Approach: With improved bandwidth availability, taking the grid to the internet is becoming a reality. However issues’ regarding the security and bandwidth utilization needs to be understood as these factors become crucial to the success of the grid as a commercial model. Results: Here in this research work we investigate the effect of data intensive applications running in a grid with different number of nodes under constrained bandwidth. Conclusion/Recommendations: Our simulation shows that increasing node count does not guarantee improved quality of service.
