Network Cost Matrix

One of the common use cases reported by the experiments is enabling network-aware tools, this is mainly driven by the need to optimize transfers and/or experiment workflows. This involves providing a uniform way to access and integrate existing measurements and the ability to define a so called “distance” metric between ...

Creation and implementation of a generic authorization schema for web based Site Status Board application

 

The Experiment Dashboard provides a wide range of applications for monitoring of the LHC computing activities on the WLCG infrastructure. Certain policies define privileges for data access, recording and modifications. The goal of the project is to improve the authentication and authorisation system for the Experiment Dashboard Applications.

Monitoring data transfers and access activities in WLCG with Hadoop, Spark and the Lambda architecture.

Monitoring the WLCG infrastructure requires to gather and to analyze high volume of heterogeneous data (e.g. data transfers, job monitoring, site tests) coming from different services and experiment-specific frameworks to provide a uniform and flexible interface for scientists and sites. The current architecture, where relational database systems are used
