FermiGrid is the facility that provides the Fermilab Campus Grid with unified job submission, authentication, authorization and other ancillary services for the Fermilab scientific computing stakeholders. We have completed a program of work to make these services resilient to high authorization request rates, as well as failures of building or network infrastructure. We will present the techniques used, the response of the system against real world events and the performance metrics that have been achieved.


Describes the tuning that was made to the
FermiGrid SAZ and GUMS servers to use the
XACML protocol more efficiently and to the
clients to avoid timouts
