Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow DataGrid TestBed Integration Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow Guidelines and Policies

Disk/CPU resources allocated to each group Grid is based on distributed resources - a group is an experiment Its all in the small print. An institute is typically involved in many experiments Institutes define priorities on computing resources via OPEN policy statements e.g. Edinburgh/Glasgow ScotGrid - Priority 1: ATLAS, LHCb, Computing Science Data Mining - Priority 2: BaBar, CDF, UKQCD BioInformatics All jobs submitted via Globus authentication - Certificates identified by user and experiment Need to implement priority Minimum amount of data to deliver at a time for a job? * Implemented by site administrators, Where to store files? with OPEN policies defined at each site Which data access/storing activities have the highest priority? based on e.g. case to funding authority Whats new? Sharing of the resources among groups? Ability to monitor/allocate unused resources Users belong to multiple groups? We will be judged by how well we work as a How many jobs per group are allowed? What processing activities are allowed at each site? To which sites should data access and processing activities be sent? How should the resources of a local cluster of PCs be shared among groups?

Allocation of GridPP Posts 1. Procedure for Internal Tendering 1. The deliverables in each of the above areas are defined by the GridPP documents in: The Project Management Board (PMB) has assessed technical submissions from the experiments, following discussions between the EB (Experiments Board) and the Technical Assessment Group (TAG). Internal tenders are now called for within GridPP in eleven work areas, according to following table. http://www.gridpp.ac.uk/eb/tender/tender.html and the Technical Analysis Group (TAG) document: http://www.gridpp.ac.uk/tb/doc/TAG.doc

For experiments [14.0 additional FTEs]: these resources must be w.r.t. an experiments requirements, emphasising grid-enablement of the experiment infrastructure, as described in the above input documents. The additional experiment posts (or 0.5 posts) will be allocated to ensure that the grid requirements of the experiments are met. Priority will be given to software development to integrate middleware elements for the experiments. For Testbed (Prototype Tier-1/Tier-A) [2.0 additional FTEs]: these resources should focus on the implementation of a UK testbed for the use of the experiments. The TAG document incorporates the specification for this work. Table 1: GridPP deliverables.

Tenders with manpower resources already allocated should indicate how the programme of work for previously allocated (half-)posts integrate with proposed developments. 2. We ask you to respond, on behalf of your Institute or, preferably, the group of Institutes representing the UK collaboration, with a short case (~1 page per additional post) consisting of: c. what are you already doing in this area? d. how would you implement the deliverables? (e.g. via recruitment and/or re-deployment of existing staff) j. a note of principal investigator and co-investigators (as in the PPARC RG2 form) 3. The deadline for submission [via e-mail to Steve Lloyd] is 12 noon on Friday 30th November. 4. The GridPP Peer Review Selection Committee (PRSC) will meet on Friday December 7th and determine priorities and allocations according to this input. Priority grading will be made according to the standard alpha gradings (up to alpha 5). 5. The recommendations of the PRSC will be subject to approval by the PPARC e-Science Director. 6. Results will be communicated to all Institutes as soon as possible after the PRSC meeting. A joint programme of work is explicitly encouraged for ATLAS/LHCb and CDF/D0. See the associated experiment documents. Other joint programmes are similarly encouraged, where Institutes have resources to do so. 7. For approved additional posts, an RG2 form should be submitted directly to Guy Rickett at PPARC for a spine point 13 post with end point December 31st 2004, as soon as the results are known. The initial stages of the recruitment process should proceed in parallel at your Institute. It is hoped that all posts will be established by April 2002 at the latest, in order to meet the requirements of a 3-year

programme. A total PMB allocation of 16 FTEs has been made. Approval has been given for up to 15 of these to be new posts. The Peer Review Selection Committee will determine how the posts are filled, according to the returns from Institutes (or group of Institutes). 8. The fixed end-point of December 31st 2004 reflects the timescale of GridPP and has been adopted to encourage the community to meet this timescale. PPARCs current e-Science funding was allocated from April 1st 2001 to March 31st 2004. The start point for GridPP is September 1st 2001 and therefore some rollover has been accepted.

Grid Unlocked? PPARC has recently funded a 17m 3-year project to build a UK Grid for Particle Physics. GridPP is the collaboration of Particle Physicists and Computing Scientists from the UK and CERN, who started this pioneering work at the beginning of September 2001. GridPP will deliver the Grid software (middleware) and hardware infrastructure to enable testing of a prototype of the Grid for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) project at CERN of significant scale. The GridPP project is designed to integrate with the existing Particle Physics programme within the UK, thus enabling early deployment and full testing of Grid technology and efficient use of limited resources. The project will disseminate GridPP deliverables in the multi-disciplinary e-Science environment and will seek to build collaborations with emerging Grid activities both nationally and internationally.
