Grid prototype

Grid Prototype

  • What is it?

    • The deployment of Grid tools “in production”

    • A testbed for development + integration

    • Stage 1 of the ramp-up to LHCUK computing

    • A facility for running experiments to use

    • An approach for harnessing existing resources

    • A means of coordination

    • For “users”, the visible face of The Grid

    • …a very tall order!

Grid prototype1

Grid Prototype

  • What is it not?

    • Specific to HEP (necessarily)

    • A support service (Andy McNab’s problem!)

    • Completely within the UK

    • A direct mapping with DataGrid WP6

    • …or GridPP WG-G (some mixing with H)

    • As well understood as some other areas… yet.

Dave Newbold, University of Bristol24/5/2001


Areas of activity

Areas of Activity

  • Running the basic (minimal) Grid services

    • Information service

    • Security / CA

    • Monitoring (fabric; network; performance)

    • The central testbed site (RAL)

    • A ‘production’ service, based on the best stable tools

    • “The Men at Coventry”

  • Proto regional centre operations

    • ProtoT1 (RAL); a large manpower requirement

    • ProtoT2: not directly funded?

    • ProtoT3: close links with institute system managers

Areas of activity1

Areas of Activity

  • Development + integration support

    • The ‘testbed’ side of things

    • Providing a stable platform for tests of

      • Scaling

      • Interoperability

      • Regression tests

    • Partitioned from the production service

    • Need to be flexible in resource allocation and scheduling

    • A contribution to the DataGrid WP6

  • Data challenge support

    • Stress-testing the Grid Prototype

    • May require intensive support + scheduling

    • Coordinate with WP6/8

Relationship to other wgs

Relationship to other WGs

  • WGs ABC (middleware):

    • Supply tools, expertise, policy for GP

    • Require testbed facilities, monitoring information, feedback

  • WGs DEF (security, networking):

    • The enabling services for the GP

    • Very close communication required

    • May require testbed facilities

  • WG H (support):

    • Provides support to GP ops, developers, users

    • Critical for the success of the project

  • WG I (Experiments):

    • Oversees experiment-specific development

    • Activities in support of generic HEP apps are overseen by GP.
