SAM-Grid Status Core SAM development SAM-Grid architecture Progress Future work
Core SAM development SAM is a production system 300 active users 60,000 file replicas 5,000 files/day cache turnover (1TB) A fine-tuning example: The Friday afternoon opportunity Many users submit several projects for the w/e Station has project limit, 0(Ncpus) Queue projects, but then how to keep required data in cache Parallelisation & re-education: N processes per project, not N projects with 1 process each
Physicists always cheat… SAM helps
Multi-Process projects Project Manager Together, processes see each file once. Process is simple: Asks: Give me a file Responds to: Here`s the path Hang on None left Processes

Job Definition and Management Condor MMS Condor-G GRAM Grid sensors Request Broker Compute Element Resource Job Scheduler Job Client Job Status Updates Batch System Site Gatekeeper Job Management Globus GRAM for inter-operability CondorG for remote submission Condor MMS for resource brokerage Condor is Resource Broker Collaboration with Condor group Condor members at weekly SAM-Grid meetings CVS branch of v6_3_2 with our requested functionality Ability to choose globus-scheduler External function calls allowed in MMS – can query SAM Db
Grid RC Monitoring and Information Logging and Bookkeeping Info Processor and Converter Replica Catalog Resource Info GSI AAA MDS-2 Condor Class Ads Monitoring & Information Package of information providers to interrogate: SAM Station: project progress, disk caches Replica Catalogue: file location, size Batch Systems: free cpus Resources: os, code releases present, memory, disk space,…
Monitoring & Information
SAM Data Handling DH Resource Management Data Delivery and Caching Data Handling Existing SAM system Added gridftp as a transfer protocol (also kerb-rcp,bbftp available) Use server certificates issued by FNAL Kerberized CA Delegation of user proxy not (yet) done (accounting, security) Server runs as unprivileged user Report bug, receive patch. Apply. Re-build on Linux and Ultrix, repackage,… i.e. very poor support. Globus bundles packaged as upd products During testing - re-discovered globus-url-copy bug STILL in downloadable globus release! Repeat above procedure? No, take EDG special globus-url-copy binary.
Future Work n th order brokering 0 th order: Submit to site where most data replicated. Trivial with condor additions. 1 st order: Sense grid connectivity using WP7 tools as plugin to condor Inter-site parallelisation: Split datasets, move jobs to data Dynamic station installation To use non-dedicated resources and clean-up afterwards upd has almost no dependencies on native packages Auto-tailoring forced by CDF makes this possible Further MC production/SAM integration.
0 th order brokering File Count: 99 Average File Size: Total File Size: Total Event Count: known domains and 3 stations At wuppertal :- 4719Mb( 7%) from fnal.gov at 0.5Mb/s Mb( 73%) from ic.ac.uk at 2.0Mb/s Mb( 20%) from pnfs at 0.5Mb/s. Transfer time =18.0hrs. Plus 2 tape mounts. At imperial-test :- 4719Mb( 7%) from fnal.gov at 0.5Mb/s Mb( 73%) from ic.ac.uk at 10.0Mb/s Mb( 20%) from pnfs at 0.5Mb/s. Transfer time =11.8hrs. Plus 2 tape mounts. At central-analysis : Mb( 78%) from pnfs at 10.0Mb/s Mb( 22%) from fnal.gov at 100.0Mb/s. Transfer time =1.5hrs. Plus 2 tape mounts. …but no free cpu! enstore tape
Conclusions SAM production system Heavy and increasing D0 use. Fine tuning. CDF deployment – no show stoppers SAM-Grid taking shape Monitoring & Information prototype available GridFTP pre-deployment tests. System failed me. Remote job submission works. CondorG enhancements allow site matching in MMS by query of SAM replica catalogue. Outreach-SAM offers unique, working example of a PP grid already some interest in PP data access patterns. expect more interest in real data handling & optimisation. Wise learn from other peoples mistakes
