12 ICFA SCIC Meeting CERN Dec 01 R. Hughes-Jones Manchester Grid Network Projects DataGrid GridPP Extending DataGrid to BaBar, D0, CDF,… in UK DataTAG Foci: Network resarch, Grid inter-operability MB-NG UK funded 2.5Gbit Development Network Optical Switching

13 ICFA SCIC Meeting CERN Dec 01 R. Hughes-Jones Manchester Network Monitoring Several tools in test – plugged into a coherent structure: PingER, RIPE one way times, iperf, UDPmon, rTPL, GridFTP, and NWS prediction engine continuous tests for last few months to selected sites: DL Man RL UCL CERN Lyon Bologna SARA NBI SLAC … The aims of monitoring for the Grid: to inform Grid applications, via the middleware, of the current status of the network – input for resource broker and scheduling to identify fault conditions in the operation of the Grid to understand the instantaneous, day-to-day, and month-by-month behaviour of the network – provide advice on configuration etc. Report written on LDAP scheme for publishing the network information Will be used by UK e-science sites and non HEP WPs

14 ICFA SCIC Meeting CERN Dec 01 R. Hughes-Jones Manchester UDPmon Measuring Throughput with UDP Send a burst of UDP frames spaced at regular intervals Vary the frame size and the frame transmit spacing Record The time to send and the time to receive the frames The number received, the number lost, number out of order The received inter-packet spacing Zero stats OK done Get remote statistics Send statistics Send data frames at regular intervals Time to send Time to receive Inter-packet time

15 ICFA SCIC Meeting CERN Dec 01 R. Hughes-Jones Manchester Local Network Monitoring Store & Analysis of Data (Access) Access to current and historic data and metrics via the Web, i.e. WP7 NM Pages, access to metric forecasts Backend LDAP script to fetch metrics Monitor process to push metrics local LDAP Server Grid Application access via LDAP Schema to - monitoring metrics; - location of monitoring data.

28 ICFA SCIC Meeting CERN Dec 01 R. Hughes-Jones Manchester E-science core project MB - NG u Project to investigate and pilot: end-to-end traffic engineering and management over multiple administrative domains – MPLS in core diffserv at the edges. Managed bandwidth and Quality-of-Service provision. (Robin Tasker) High performance high bandwidth data transfers. (Richard HJ) Demonstrate end-to-end network services to CERN using Dante EU- DataGrid and the US DataTAG. u Status: approved with requested funds start on 1 Dec 2001 u Partners:CISCO, CLRC, Manchester, UCL, UKERNA plus Lancaster and Southampton (IPv6) u A technical meeting held – draft spec. of the HW required u Would like to use real Grid traffic – as demonstrator: CDF UCL-RAL BaBar Man-RAL

29 ICFA SCIC Meeting CERN Dec 01 R. Hughes-Jones Manchester And Finally in case it helps: GridPP and DataGrid have been working on packaging Globus v2 as a.rpm kit. Makes installation simpler. Available from DataGrid WP6 web: marianne.in2p3.fr/datagrid/testbed1/globus

30 ICFA SCIC Meeting CERN Dec 01 R. Hughes-Jones Manchester Conclusion & Status SuperJANET4 stable working well Access links to Campus becoming very inportant Network Links and peering to US good overall US-UK bandwidth upgrade overdue Geant access to Europe OK (at the moment !) Considerable UK interest in the Internet2 tests Grid: Lots of interesting work to do …
