In this work we will show the development and the work carried on in order to build a monitoring tool that gives an aggregate view of all the users activities on a given grid site. The tool is able to show the job submitted by each user together with information about the file accessed on the storage system. Also in a farm with posix-like parallel file-system, the tools is able to track down both ... More

In the framework of the Italian Grid Infrastructure, we are designing a web portal for the grid and cloud services provisioning. In following this approach, we feel that one of the key point that this kind of application must be able to address is the possibility to hide the complexity of the X509 certificates request and management. In fact, while the PKI infrastructure is certainly one of the ... More

Monte Carlo (MC) applications are inherently parallel and computationally-bound. In a distributed computing infrastructure, once MC application is initiated, it can be usually executed independently, i.e. with almost no interprocess communication. Such behavior allows for a usage of any kind of computing resources, but requires an integrated framework to simplify application management, and even m ... More

Users of computational resources come with a multitude of different application scenarios. It is difficult if not impossible to cater for all user requirements of a computing center at the same time and in a timely manner. Therefore, it would be beneficial if the user could provide the runtime environment and thus pose less complex requirements for the computing center. The computing center can th ... More
