In practice…
  • CN and NSO are now so much mixed that it was difficult to split the presentation

CS group meeting

  • A lot was done
    • Complete structured cabling phase II
    • Start LHC control installations
    • Two proposals for PS/SPS/TCR rejuvenation
    • Preparation of the PS rejuvenation
    • … and cope with (always urgent) user requests
  • Despite
    • Logistics problems
    • Environment (e.g. power)
    • Budget constraints

CS group meeting

software support and engineering
Software Support and Engineering
  • Studies of “real time” constraints for LHC
  • Preparation for Wireless deployment & Management
  • Call for tenders (Routers and switches)
  • Evaluation of new industrial switches
  • Definition of a common service platform (Linux).

CS group meeting

computer center backbone openlab
Computer Center, Backbone, Openlab, …
  • End of FDDI
    • History goes
  • End of 128.141
    • After 7 years of common and intensive effort
  • Towards an IP only network
    • Studies have started
  • Preparation of the Computer Center Move to the Vault
    • This is not just a DEMECO problem
  • Openlab: 10 gigabit-ethernet tests
    • And outstanding TESTBED performance results…

what next

What next ?

For CN and NSO sections

Many projects have started

technical network implementation
Technical network Implementation
  • We managed to convince
  • Got agreement
  • Huge Logistic problem
    • Call for tenders, deliveries, stock management, etc
  • A lot to install !
  • Adaptation of services
    • New switches
    • Database & tools extensions
  • New features to study & deploy
    • Clock distribution, Multicast, QoS,…
  • Integrated, with the GPN, into one single 24x24, 365x365 support schema

CS group meeting

and lhc physics
And LHC physics!!!…
  • The LHC project is not only the machine
  • Physics at the pits
    • Very large and complex systems to install
    • Will start end 2003 for the (large) infrastructures
  • Computer Center farms challenge
    • Solutions for installing network for 10000s of nodes
    • Operating such large systems

CS group meeting

services high availability
Services High Availability
  • GPN Backbone redundancy: Implemented
  • DHCP: Redundant services: done
  • Technical Network: part of the challenge
  • CSAM
  • ST/EL: Better power feeds…
  • DNS: soon to improve
  • Spectrum everywhere, 24x24.

CS group meeting

soon to come
Soon to come
  • Better network access control
  • Pilot High density 100 base-T to the desk
  • All database based applications move to WEB interfaces including MTP (si, si!)
  • LANDB2 in January
    • LANDB3 mid 2003 will fully Integrate Network/Register and LANDB2
  • All services moved to Intel/Linux
    • End of NCDs
    • DXCOMS off …
