HOWTO guide for Service Challenge Three Throughput phase

Access to FTS Clients

There are two ways to get access to the SC3 Clients:


You need to configure the /opt/glite/etc/services.xml to point to the SC3 FTS server. The contents of the file should be:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
  <service name="EGEEfts">

  <service name="EGEEchannel">

Channel Management

All user DN's should be allowed to submit jobs. This also allows them to view their own jobs. For a site admin to manage their channel, they need to be in the manager mapfile. Please contact if you want your DN added to the manager mapfile.

Accessible Files

For the throughput phase, we will use sets of pre-generated files that have been loaded to disk. Initially, there is a set of 1000 1GB files on the cluster and a set of 1000 small files (~5KB).

myproxy server

The FTS is configured to connect to 1 Myproxy server in order to get the proxies to run the jobs. For the FTS servers at CERN, we use as the Myproxy server.

Load Generator

The FtsLoadGenerator should be used in preference for generating load, since it has a list of 'bad' files in the 1000 that should not be transferred (due to problems with disks, etc...)

Load Generation Allocation

In order to co-ordinate who runs the load-generators for which channels, site admins can note in this table if they run it, and also, if possible, with which DN/DNs they will run it.
