WMS 3.1 Pilot Home Page

  • Start Date: Fri 13 Feb 2009
  • Description: Pilot Service of gLite WMS 3.1 @ CERN, SCAI CNAF
  • Coordinator: Nick Thackray
  • Contact e-mail: na


The pilot is based on two main streams of activity.

The first stream is hosted at CNAF and SCAI. It has the goal to validate the version shipped with gLite3.1 PPS Update43. This phase is not supposed to last very long and will finish ideally few days later the release of the corresponding software to production

The second stream is hosted at CERN-PROD . One or more WMSs based on the version what is released with gLite 3.1 PPS are run in support to the Alice production system. The goal is to debug the "performance decay" observed by that VO at CERN during last Christmas' break

Use cases

In both streams the application model is the same: the newly installed services are deployed in production and kept under observation without any special solicitation from the VOs.
