Performance Analysis of the Optical Link

The Storage Resource Manager (SRM)

Detailed performance analysis of the CERN-RAL link was carried out using UDPmon (http://www.hep.man.ac.uk/u/rich/net/). Tests ensured that no significant packet loss was occurring.

dCache provides a massive parallel gridftp service to over 120TB of storage.This provides an SRM front end and HSM capability to a Storage Tape Robot. Local tests show that the base configuration (4 disk servers) is capable of almost 4Gb/s I/O rate. (http://www.dcache.org/)

High Performance Data Transfer for the LHC Service Challenges

The LHC Service Challenge Timeline and Milestones

LHC Service Challenge

  • The LCG Service Challenges are aimed at helping to achieve the goal of a production quality world-wide Grid that meets the requirements of the LHC experiments in terms of functionality and scale.
  • The programme currently involves both the 4 LHC experiments as well as the Tier0, all Tier1s and a number of key Tier2s, allowing all primary data flows to be demonstrated.
  • On the last service challenge:
    • We managed to obtain close to 1GB/s for extended periods
    • Several sites exceeded the targets agreed.
    • Several sites reached or even exceeded their ‘nominal rates’.
    • Still see quite a few operational problems.
    • And the software is not completely debugged yet.
  • Our main aims now are to:
    • Get data rates at all Tier1s up to MoU Values.
    • (Re-)deploy Required Services at Sites so that they meet MoU Targets.
    • Understand other key Use Cases for verification / validation.
  • Focus is on service and stability.

By September 2006, Tier-1 Centres such as the GRIDPP Tier-1 Centre at RAL must develop and put in place infrastructures to cope with sustained data rates of 400MB/s from CERN. In order to meet this challenge, a number of “Service Challenges” are planned between now and the start of LHC data taking in 2007 (https://uimon.cern.ch/twiki/bin/view/LCG/LCGServiceChallenges)

The UK’s prototype optical private network (OPN) to CERN

The prototype OPN service has been provided by the UKLIGHT project managed by UKERNA. Four dedicated 1Gb/s links have been provisioned between RAL and CERN. This is planned to be replaced by a dedicated 10Gb link over SuperJanet 5 in the second half of the year.(http://www.uklight.ac.uk/).

The LCG 3D project

Globally replicated, low volume (tens of terabytes) relational databases will compliment the streamed physics data. (http://lcg3d.cern.ch/)

Throughput monitoring by RGMA

Sustained data rates of over 170MB/s have been achieved between CERN and RAL.The LCG project uses R-GMA (http://www.r-gma.org/) to capture this data from global producers such as the RAL Tier-1 for presentation in near to real time monitoring pages available on the LCG Service Challenge website.
