3 20.10.20113 Mihnea Dulea, IFIN-HH COMPUTING SUPPORT for LHC - LCG LHC COMPUTING GRID LCG is a wide distributed array of computing resources that provides the computing support required for the storage, processing, simulation and analysis of the data gathered by the four major experiments performed at LHC. It consists of more than 140 computing centres and federations of centres from 35 countries. The resource centres are classified according to their size and functionality as Tier-0 (CC @ CERN), Tier-1 (11 centres), and Tier-2. The centres are interconnected through a high-speed network (GEANT2 in EU). Current and 2012-2014 activity related to LHC.

14 20.10.201114 Mihnea Dulea, IFIN-HH ANALYSIS of NETWORK INFRASTRUCTURE Objective: identify the weak points of the FR-RO data connection and adoption of measures for improving the transfer capacity of large datasets. Network structure: complex, various owners and administrators => more difficult to act Activities (RO+FR)  Testing connectivity & transport capacity with various tools  Finding routing paths and points of data traffic delay  Comparing performances of RO-CERN link with those of RO-IN2P3 SectionCentresAdministratorOwnerLocation IFIN-HH LANRO-02-NIPNE RO-07-NIPNE CTI/DPETIIFIN-HHMagurele IFIN - UPBUPBICOMMIFIN-HHUPB RoEduNetRO-14-ITIM RO-16-UAIC AARNIECMECTSRomania GEANT2In 34 EU states DANTEEU NRENsEUEU RENATERGRIF, IN2P3GIP RENATER France Conclusions: a) performance degradation at RoEduNet / GEANT2 interface b) bottlenecks on some of the RoEduNet routers

15 20.10.201115 Mihnea Dulea, IFIN-HH IMPROVING POINT-TO-POINT TRAFFIC PERFORMANCES Requires close collaboration with network administrators along the RO-FR path Example: following bandwidth capacity and traffic analysis, a RoEduNet router was found, responsible of bottlneck. AARNIEC's intervention rised the available bandwidth to 700 Mbps (fig. below). Permanent monitoring required

16 20.10.201116 Mihnea Dulea, IFIN-HH MONITORING TOOLS for DATA TRANSFER and STORAGE PERFORMANCE - 1 Development of software tools for monitoring of SE traffic (in/out) (adding data sent by daemons running on storage servers in a database + web interface for display) Tools developed in IFIN-HH; useful for FR partners too for monitoring RO sites.  Traffic from/to WNs and from/to external network Max at 5 Gbps Max at > 3 Gbps

17 20.10.201117 Mihnea Dulea, IFIN-HH MONITORING TOOLS for DATA TRANSFER and STORAGE PERFORMANCE - 2  Traffic on gateway (in/out); SE extern throughput  Monitoring groups of running or pending jobs

18 20.10.201118 Mihnea Dulea, IFIN-HH MONITORING TOOLS for DATA TRANSFER and STORAGE PERFORMANCE - 3  Accounting of running or pending jobs on CE or CREAM-CE

19 20.10.201119 Mihnea Dulea, IFIN-HH IMPROVEMENT of SITE MONITORING and TECHNICAL SUPPORT Implementation of its own SAM (Service Availability Monitoring) system, that uses IFIN-HH grid infrastructure and a new monitoring vo - ifops. Results published using Nagios. Early notification of technical staff leads to improvement of availability of grid services Monitoring of CREAM-CE,

20 20.10.201120 Mihnea Dulea, IFIN-HH IMPROVEMENT and TESTS of SE-WN THROUGHPUT Adding more resources (WNs) doesn't always mean better results. Scalability is required Improvement of file transfer speed from SE to WN, required by analysis jobs (4-6 files 2-4 GB) Replacing the transfer to disk servers through Network File System (NFS) protocole by new DPM (Disk Pool Manager) disk storage servers. Higher transfer speed => no job exceeds the time limit => no cancellation Tests of the new configuration Time representation of the transfer speed (in Mbps) for 70 quasi-simultaneous jobs

21 20.10.201121 Mihnea Dulea, IFIN-HH GLOBAL IMPROVEMENT of EFFICIENCY Mean efficiency of ATLAS job execution in 2011: 91% Monthly number of ATLAS jobs and number of ATLAS events processed in RO-LCG
