This paper describes how network characteristics in addition to data location and availability of computation can be used to optimise the scheduling of large-scale, Grid-resident, scientific analysis jobs. This is particularly of interest to the high energy physics community and the approach has been adopted by several groups of LHC experimenters. In particular the CERN CMS group has worked with UWE in evaluating this research. The approach demonstrated leads to considerable gains in analysis throughput and significant improvements in performance of the scientific analysis pipeline. The work has been reported at GCC 2005 and at the eScience 2006 conference.
