The Grid Workloads Archive

“ Easy access to grid workload traces. ”

Why do we need grid traces?

The GWA, a potential solution

  • Understand how real grids are used

  • Address the challenges facing grid resource management research and practice

  • Develop and test grid resource management solutions

  • Perform realistic simulations

The Grid Workloads Archive (GWA) is at the same time a workload data (trace) repository and a community center for resource management and scheduling in grids.

  • Standard data format (GWF) - Share traces with the community - Use extensions for specific modeling aspects - Text-based, easy to parse for custom tasks - Additional SQL-compatible data format (GWF-SQLite)

  • Automated trace analysis - Provide ready-to-use tools to the community - Promote results availability and comparability

  • Automated trace ranking - Help non-experts with their trace selection process

How to use the GWA?

  • Research in grid resource management: scheduling, monitoring, benchmarking, workload modeling, etc.;

  • Grid maintenance and operation: daily functionality checks, long-term maintenance, realistic tests, stress tests, reliability tests, functionality tests, design adequacy tests etc.;

  • Grid design, procurement, and performance evaluation: comparing grid settings, “what if?” scenarios, grid benchmarking.

Community effort

We have already received contributions from a number of grid owners and/or operators, which we gratefully acknowledge and thank.

Use GWA traces in your work!

We need your help!


We are looking for one-time contributors, that is, contributors who agree to share their old grid traces with the community, and, most importantly, for monthly contributors, that is, contributors who agree to send current trace data monthly.
