Status at the start of the EMI project


The ARC-CE can be configured to send usage records to SGAS. Then someone with a funny script extracts them from SGAS, converts them to APEL records and insert them by hand, or in some semi-automatic manner.


The CREAM CE is able to send usage records to both DGAS and APEL, for the following batch systems:

  • Condor
  • LSF
  • SGE
  • Torque/PBS

Besides installing the proper DGAS or APEL sensors, what was required (for both APEL and DGAS) was to create a special file with an entry such as this one:

"timestamp=2010-08-10 07:39:50" "userDN=/C=IT/O=INFN/OU=Personal Certificate/L=Padova/CN=Alvise Dorigo" 
"userFQAN=/dteam/Role=NULL/Capability=NULL" "" 
"jobID=CREAM885035813" "" "localUser=18120"
"timestamp=2010-08-10 07:40:00" "userDN=/C=IT/O=INFN/OU=Personal Certificate/L=Padova/CN=Alvise Dorigo" 
"userFQAN=/dteam/Role=NULL/Capability=NULL" "" 
"jobID=CREAM498404624" "" "localUser=18120"

for each job.

The it is up to DGAS/APEL to do the work.


There is no accounting system in UNICORE.



Is the goal to be able to send usage records to both DGAS and APEL ? For which batch systems ?



Can we see a short term solution (e.g. something like what is currently used in the CREAM CE) and a longer term solution ?
