Scientific codes are all subject to variation in performance depending on the runtime platform and/or configuration, the output writing API employed, and the file system for output. Since changing the IO routines to match the optimal or desired configuration for a given system can be costly in terms of human time and machine resources, the Adaptable IO(More)
We have developed and implemented the Relational Grid Monitoring Architecture (R-GMA) as part of the DataGrid project, to provide a flexible information and monitoring service for use by other middleware components and applications. R-GMA presents users with a virtual database and mediates queries posed at this database: users pose queries against a global(More)
SUMMARY The first Provenance Challenge was set up in order to provide a forum for the community to understand the capabilities of different provenance systems and the expressiveness of their provenance representations. To this end, a functional magnetic resonance imaging workflow was defined, which participants had to either simulate or run in order to(More)
—Peta-scale scientific applications running on High End Computing (HEC) platforms can generate large volumes of data. For high performance storage and in order to be useful to science end users, such data must be organized in its layout, indexed, sorted, and otherwise manipulated for subsequent data presentation, visualization, and detailed analysis. In(More)
One of the most pressing issues with petascale analysis is the transport of simulation results data to a meaningful analysis. Traditional workflow prescribes storing the simulation results to disk and later retrieving them for analysis and visualization. However, at petascale this storage of the full results is prohibitive. A solution to this problem is to(More)
Computational Grids are distributed systems that provide access to computational resources in a transparent fashion. Collecting and providing information about the status of the Grid itself is called Grid monitoring. We describe R-GMA (Relational Grid Monitoring Architecture) as a solution to the Grid monitoring problem. It uses a local as view approach to(More)
In this paper we present a workflow solution to support graphically the design, execution, monitoring, and performance visualisation of complex grid applications. The described workflow concept can provide interoperability among different types of legacy applications on heterogeneous computational platforms, such as Condor or Globus based grids. The major(More)
GRM was originally designed and implemented as part of the P-GRADE graphical parallel program development environment running on supercomputers and clusters. In the framework of the biggest European Grid project, the DataGrid we investigated the possibility of transforming GRM to a grid application monitoring infrastructure. This paper presents the(More)
We describe R-GMA (Relational Grid Monitoring Architecture) which has been developed within the European DataGrid Project as a Grid Information and Monitoring System. Is is based on the GMA from GGF, which is a simple Consumer-Producer model. The special strength of this implementation comes from the power of the relational model. We offer a global view of(More)
