Quarterly WP Report contribution from GridPP For Section 1: “Technical achievement ” Please summarise below all work done by “GridPP” staff during this quarter. Also describe any “ issues” which have arisen. R. Walker: Rod Walker has done core SAM work on the authentication of users - the mapping of valid globus credentials to FNAL kerberos prinicples (real people). Further work on the integration of mc_runjob into the SAM-Grid system including local BS id(s) to global job id mapping, output file auto-storage and job submission. D. Evans: Design of farm control/monitoring software, including xml-rpc based TCP server and python clients and implementation in a secure manner. Generalisation of mc_runjob package to cross experiment workflow management tool. Implementation of monitoring information for samgrid/jim jobs, including reporting status to JIM XML- DB server. Expansion of mc_runjob to handle d0 data and analysis tasks at remote grid sites P.Love: Working with JIM team to roll out SAM-grid V1 and provide feedback on installation procedure. Lancaster site setup with client, submission, monitoring, and execution capabilities. SAM and MC jobs have been run between UK sites (Imperial+RAL+Lancaster) using JIM. Also, been working with Dave Evans on Runjob development and involved with the joint DØ/CMS 'Shahkar' project. EDG v1.4.12 Compute Element and LCFG server have been setup at Lancaster and about to be tested. (Is this relevent?) Phil Lewis: In the past quarter I have been learning about mc-runjob and SAM, and the the SAM- GRID project. In particular I started work adapting the JIM-monitoring package to collect and deliver information about Monte Carlo jobs. At present I am working on a python package that automates and manages the storage of files produced by Runjob into SAM. For Section 2: “Status of deliverables and milestones” If there are any deliverables for which GridPP post(s) is responsible, then describe the status at a level of detail appropriate to closeness of delivery date. Also provide the schedule information in the format below (as appears in the template). Deliverable name Actual Plan On time Target Actual deliverable (YES/NO) 3.6.1 Architecture Design and DOC 2002-Q2 Yes End of 30 June 2002 Technology Review June 3.6.3 Phase-1 SAM Development Software 2002-Q3 Yes 30-Sep-02 October 2002 3.6.6 Prototype SAM Monte Carlo Software 2003-Q2 No 31-Mar-03 Production system using Resource Broke 3.6.9 Pilot SAM Grid for D0 Software 2003-Q3 No 30-Sep-03 users. 3.6.11 Robust SAM-based grid Software 2004-Q1 31-Mar-04 service for D0 Plan= delivery date, Target=current target delivery date, actual=actual delivery date Describe any changes in the deliverables There have been delays in the deliverables for the roll out of the Prototype SAM Monte Carlo Production system. Beta testing is ongoing and nearly complete, expect roll out in the UK by mid summer. These delays have been caused by the SAM-grid team aggressively pursuing a full SAM based grid service for DØ. A review of the DØ Grid project has been commenced. The schedule and list of deliverables will be reviewed over the next several months in light of possible changes in computing requirements for the experiment. For Section 3: “Achievements” Describe any tangible which falls under the following headings: Conferences/workshops organised None Conference talks Submission of Papers CHEP Papers The SAMGrid Testbed: First D0 and CDF Experiences with Analysis on the Grid Authors: I.
