motivation and objectives
Motivation and Objectives
  • Motivation the involvement in Grid Testbeds
    • Participation in LHC experiments (HEP):
      • ATLAS
    • Participation in Air Pollution Modelling
  • Objectives:
    • Initial development and exploitation of a Grid infrastructure in Valencia.
    • Physics and Chemistry analysis preparation for Grid computing.
    • Provide support and infrastructure for:
      • Development of Grid applications;
      • Test and validation of Grid applications.
grid projects
GRID Projects
  • DATAGRID (from European Union)
  • CROSSGRID (from European Union)
  • SPECIAL ACTION (Spanish Ministry of Science and Technology)
  • Three-Years Project (Spanish Ministry of Science and Technology)
current grid activities
Current Grid Activities
  • Evaluation of the DATAGRID middleware
  • Implementation of the Valencia testbed site:
    • Maintenance of a Globus meta-directory:
      • Institutional MDS of Valencia “dc=ific, dc=es, o=Grid”
    • Integration of Valencia into the DATAGRID testbed:
      • Globus gatekeeper;
      • Globus Condor and PBS job-manager;
      • GSI authentication through the Spanish (in IFCA) CA
      • Etc,...
    • Participation in DATAGRID testbeds 0 and 1
current grid activities1
Current Grid Activities
  • We are participating in this year in the DATA CHALLENGE 1 (DC1) of ATLAS experiment with two goals:
    • Event productions in our farm in order to provide samples for physics studies and make the Technical Design Report for the end of 2002.
    • To test in our farm the new software, including Geant4, the new event data model and the evaluation of two database technologies, Objectivity and Root-I/O.
  • 400k events have been simulated in DC1 phase 1 (non EDG used, but foreseen for phase 2 )
    • Total CPU time: 21 Khours
    • Total disk space: 1.1 TBytes
networking in spain
Networking in Spain
  • ISP: RedIris (Spanish Academic Research Network)
    • Geant connectivity at 2.5 Gbits/s.
    • US connectivity at 180 Mbits/s.
