Large scientific collaborations are moving towards service oriented architectures for implementation and deployment of globally distributed systems. Clarens is a high performance, easy to deploy Web service framework that supports the construction of such globally distributed systems. This paper discusses some of the core functionality of Clarens that the(More)
Monte Carlo production in CMS has received a major boost in performance and scale since the past CHEP06 conference. The production system has been re-engineered in order to incorporate the experience gained in running the previous system and to integrate production with the new CMS event data model, data management system and data processing framework. The(More)
Clarens is a Grid-enabled web service infrastructure implemented to augment the current batch-oriented Grid services computing model in the Compound Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment of the LHC. Clarens servers leverage the Apache web server to provided a scalable framework for clients to communicate with services using the SOAP and XML-RPC protocols. This(More)
The responsiveness of Ixodes rubicundus ticks on questing substrates and the success of their attachment to non-living substrates were investigated. The purpose of this study was to relate responsiveness to conditions of temperature and humidity, to compare the efficacy of flagging and dragging methods to estimate the size of populations of adult I.(More)
Lambda Station is an ongoing project of Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory and the California Institute of Technology. The goal of this project is to design, develop and deploy network services for path selection, admission control and flow based forwarding of traffic among data- intensive Grid applications such as are used in High Energy Physics and(More)
High energy physics (HEP) and other scientific communities have adopted service oriented architectures (SOA) as part of a larger grid computing effort. This effort involves the integration of many legacy applications and programming libraries into a SOA framework. The grid analysis environment (GAE) (Lingen et al., 2004) is such a service oriented(More)
Sexual dimorphism in body size is characteristic for many lxodid ticks, but it is especially expressed in the genus Ixodes. Adult females belonging to this genus are usually larger than males of the same species. The body length in the taiga tick, L persulcatus Schulze, 1930 for instance, is 3.52 + 0.19 mm (females) and 2.66 + 0.12 mm (males) respectively(More)
The Grid Analysis Environment (GAE), which is a continuation of the CAIGEE project [5], is an effort to develop, integrate and deploy a system for distributed analysis. The current focus within the GAE is on the CMS experiment [1] however the GAE design abstracts from any specific scientific experiment and focuses on scientific analysis in general. The GAE(More)
