Lcg geography

LCG Geography

  • LCG covers a number of sites both in Europe and US

  • LCG-1 testbed covers 13 sites including SINP MSU

Lev Shamardin


Lcg 1

LCG-1

  • LCG-1 is the production version of the LCG software which is now installed on the 13 LCG-1 sites and running in production mode

  • New LCG-2 is expected in production in November

Lev Shamardin


Lcg 1 architecture

LCG-1 Architecture

  • Minimal LCG-1 site must have a Computing Element with worker nodes and a Storage Element

  • There are no limitations to the number of other components installed on each site

  • These components do not have to be registered in LCG-1

Lcg 1 architecture1

LCG-1 Architecture

  • Current version LCG-1 is based on the EDG middleware with MDS information system

  • R-GMA is not yet stable enough for the production usage

  • LCG-2 will be using new R-GMA information system

Lev Shamardin


Lcfgng and lcg 1 deployment

LCFGng and LCG-1 deployment

  • The base middleware LCFGng configuration profiles are stored in the central LCG CVS repository

  • Sites create their own site-specific profiles based on the CVS configuration

  • No manual installation supported yet

Sinp msu pc farm

SINP MSU PC Farm

non-interactive

nodes

  • 20 dual-CPU PIII nodes

  • Two 1.2 TB fileservers

  • Gigabit Ethernet uplinks to the fileservers

  • Fast Ethernet links to the nodes

Software installation system on sinp msu pc farm

Software installation system on SINP MSU PC Farm

  • Based on Etherboot network boot package

  • Nodes are installed with anaconda kickstart

  • Nodes without a boot ROM are installed using a fake linux “kernel” or a boot disk

  • Supports both completely unattended automatic installation and manual installation

Lcfgng support on sinp msu pc farm

LCFGng support on SINP MSU PC Farm

  • LCFGng server was installed for configuring and installing LCG-1 nodes

  • LCFGng enabled nodes configuration is controlled from the LCFGng server

  • Nodes configuration and health status information provided with LCFGng components can be observed on the web

Current LCG-1 status in SINP MSU

  • For the LCG-1 testbed part of the PC Farm was configured as LCG-1 nodes

  • These nodes are logically disconnected from the main farm

  • Installed LCG-1 components are: Computing Element with several Worker Nodes, Storage Element, Resource Broker, BDII and User Interface

  • MyProxy and MDS servers are coming soon

Lev Shamardin


Msu pc clusters

MSU PC Clusters

  • LCG middleware installation on the SRCC MSU (Scientific Research Computing Center) parallel cluster

    • Site specifics:

      • Exotic batch system. Interface for the globus package is ready but was not completely tested

      • Only manual node configuration can be done

      • Middleware for the worker nodes must be installed on the shared filesystem

  • Connect the Physical faculty and the faculty of Computing Mathematics and Cybernetics clusters to the SINP MSU Resource Broker

    • Experience with SRCC is required, similar site-specific limitations

Lev Shamardin


Conclusion

Conclusion

  • What difficulties will emerge if a site wants to install the LCG middleware

  • What LCG can give you right now

  • Future plans

Lev Shamardin


Difficulties

Difficulties

  • At the moment the only documented way to install LCG software requires using the LCFGng configuration server

    • Using LCFGng is not possible in a number of cases, in general due to the administrative reasons

  • Minimal stand-alone site must be running quite a big number of nodes supporting the infrastructure

    • The minimal set is:

      • Resource Broker

      • BDII & MDS

      • Computing Element with Worker Nodes

      • Storage Element(s)

      • MyProxy if long-time jobs support is required

    • This gives us at least 5 nodes will be supporting the infrastructure

Lev Shamardin


What lcg 1 can give you right now

What LCG-1 can give you right now

  • Convenient way for job balancing between several sites

  • Common way of user authentication and authorization for job submission

  • Some basic accounting

  • Data replication

Lev Shamardin


Future plans

Future plans

  • SINP MSU Site is one of the sites participating in the LCG-1

  • New Russian sites will be connected to the SINP MSU Resource Broker in the nearest future

    • IHEP Protvino will be connected soon

    • ITEP and JINR Dubna in future

    • Internal MSU sites (SRCC and others) as soon as manual installation is possible
