Description

The PHENIX collaboration records large volumes of data for each experimental run (now about 1/4 PB/year). Efficient and timely analysis of this data can benefit from a framework for distributed analysis via a growing number of remote computing facilities in the collaboration. The grid architecture has been, or is being deployed at most of these facilities. The experience being obtained in the transition to the Grid infrastructure with minimum of manpower is presented with particular emphasis on job monitoring and job submission in multi cluster environment. The integration of the existing subsystems (from Globus project, from several HEP collaborations), large application libraries, and other software tools to render the resulting architecture stable, robust, and useful for the end user is also discussed.
