Production and Access to Files

  • The contribution to DC1, DC2 and Rome by ARC connected sites is documented here.
  • The ongoing production on NorduGrid sites is at the moment done in Oslo. The files and datasets are registered in the DDM catalogs. With the DQ2 client do "dq2 listDatasetsInSite" to see the datasets. The files in the sets are NOT currently available via dq2. But with the logical filenames the physical filenames can be looked up with globus RLS (rls:// Or you can use the NorduGrid/ARC client. The installation of DQ2 site services is ongoing.
