Grid middlewares simplify the access to Grid resources for the end user by providing functionality such as metascheduling, matchmaking, information services and adequate security facilities. However, the advantages of the middlewares usually come at the cost of temporal overhead added to the execution time of the submitted jobs. In this thesis, we group the overhead into two categories: The first type of overhead occurs before the jobs become executed in form of scheduling latency.

What follows is information service overhead, which is introduced by delays in information flow about the job status from the executing worker-node up to the end-user. We analyse both types of overhead with respect to several factors, such as absolute values and variance, for the Grid middlewares SSH, Globus and gLite. We evaluate our experimental data regarding daytime-, weekday-, CE- and queue-influence, and discuss the results and the implications.
