        FTS3, large scale file transfer service with simplicity and performance at its best 30m
        FTS3 is the service responsible for globally distributing the majority of the LHC data across the WLCG infrastructure. It is a file transfer scheduler which scales horizontally and it's easy to install and configure. In this talk we would like to bring the attention to the FTS3 features that could attract wider communities and administrators with several new friendly features. We will present both the new tools for the management of the FTS3 transfer parameters, for instance bandwidth-limits, max active transfers per endpoint and VO, banning users and endpoints, plus new Data Management operations (deletions and staging files from archive) easily accessed via REST-API. In addition we will also showcase the new captivating FTS3 Graphical Interface for end-users to manage their transfers (WebFTS) together with the new activities to extend the FTS3 transfers capabilities outside the grid boundaries ( Dropbox, S3, etc.) In this manner we demonstrate that FTS3 can cover the needs from casual users to high load services.

        Monviso: a portal for metering and reporting CNAF resources usage 30m
        CNAF T1 monitoring and alarming systems produce tons of data describing state, performance and usage of our resources. Collecting this kind of information centrally would benefit both resource administrators and our user community in processing information and generating reporting graphs. We built the “Monviso reporting portal” that consumes a set of key metrics, graphing them based on two main viewpoints: resource administration and experiments support. The resulting portal is a lightweight charts gallery used also by our operator-on-call.

        LHC@home status - Outlook for wider use of volunteer computing at CERN 30m
        [LHC@home][1] was brought back to CERN-IT in 2011, with 2 projects; Sixtrack and Test4Theory, the latter using virtualization with CernVM. Thanks to this development, there is increased interest in volunteer computing at CERN, notably since native virtualization support has been added to the BOINC middleware. Pilot projects with applications from the LHC experiment collaborations running on CernVM have also been deployed, opening the perspective for wider use of BOINC also for High Energy Physics software. The presentation will address the current status of LHC@home and the evolution of the CERN BOINC service to address the needs of a wider range of applications and users. [1]: http://cern.ch/lhcathome

        Future of Batch Processing at CERN: a Condor Pilot Service 30m
        The CERN Batch System comprises 4000 worker nodes, 60 queues and offers a service for various types of large user communities. In light of the developments driven by the Agile Infrastructure and the more demanding processing requirements, it will be faced with increasingly challenging scalability and flexibility needs. Last HEPiX, we presented the results of our evaluation of SLURM, Grid Engine derivatives and HTCondor. The latter being the most promising one, we started setting up an HTCondor pilot service. This talk will present the initial functions provided by this service. We will then discuss the development steps we took to implement them. Finally, we will name the next features which will ultimately be leading to the new production CERN Batch Service.

        Compute node benchmarks for Compact Muon Solenoid workflows 30m
        Hardware benchmarks are often relative to the target application. In CMS sites, new technologies, mostly processors, need to be evaluated on an yearly basis. A framework was developed at the Caltech CMS Tier-2 to benchmark compute nodes with one of the most CPU-intensive CMS workflows - The Tier-0 Reconstruction. The benchmark is a CMS job that reports the results to a central database based on CPU model and makes them available to real-time monitoring web interfaces. The goal is to provide to the collaboration a reference for CPU performance, which can also be used in automated systems through an API. The jobs run in parallel to normal Grid activity and could have their submission and reporting automated.

        HTCondor and HEP Partnership and Activities 20m
        The goal of the HTCondor team is to to develop, implement, deploy, and evaluate mechanisms and policies that support High Throughput Computing (HTC) on large collections of distributively owned computing resources. Increasingly, the work performed by the HTCondor developers is being driven by its partnership with the High Energy Physics (HEP) community. This presentation will provide an overview of how the HTCondor developers and the HEP community currently work together to advance the capabilities of batch computing, and it will also expose some of the new HTCondor functionality currently under development.

        Releasing the HTCondor-CE into the Wild 20m
        One of the most critical components delivered by the Open Science Grid (OSG) software team is the compute element, or the OSG-CE. At the core of the CE itself is the gatekeeper software for translating grid pilot jobs into local batch system jobs. OSG is in the process of migrating from the Globus gatekeeper to the HTCondor-CE, supported by the HTCondor team. The HTCondor-CE provides an alternate view on how grid gatekeepers can offer provisioning services, with a model that significantly differs from other gatekeepers such as GRAM or CREAM. Further, the HTCondor-CE is not a standalone product in itself but a specialized configuration of the familiar HTCondor software. Basing the HTCondor-CE on the much larger HTCondor product will allow a rich set of new features in the future (with low development costs!). In this presentation, I'll highlight some of the biggest technical similarities and differences between the HTCondor-CE and other gatekeepers. Further, I'll discuss some of the non-technical considerations (documentation, operations, rollout, etc) we had to take into account in managing such a large-scale software transition in the OSG Production Grid environment.

        HTCondor on the Grid and in the Cloud 20m
        An important use of HTCondor is as a scalable, reliable interface for jobs destined for other scheduling systems. These include Grid intefaces to batch systems (Globus, CREAM, ARC) and Cloud services (EC2, OpenStack, GCE). The High Energy Physics community has been a major user of this functionality and has driven its development. This talk will provide an overview of HTCondor's Grid and Cloud capabilities, how they're being employed, and our plans for future functionality.

        Evaluating Infiniband Based Networking Solutions for HEP/NP Data Processing Applications 30m
        The Infiniband networking technology is a long established and rapidly developing technology which is currently dominating the field of low-latency, high-throughput interconnects for HPC systems in general and those included in the TOP-500 list in particular. Over the last 4 years a successful use of Infiniband networking technology combined with additional IP-over-IB protocol and Infiniband to Ethernet bridging layers was demonstrated well beyond the realm of HPC, covering various high throughput computing (HTC) systems, including data processing farms and private clouds devoted to HEP/NP data processing. With the recent advances of Mellanox VPI technology in 2013-2014 the 4X FDR IB now stands as the most versatile networking solution available for existing and future data centers that need to support both HTC and HPC oriented activities that can be seamlessly integrated into the existing Ethernet based infrastructure. Furthermore, it can be done completely transparently for the end users of these facilities, though certain modifications of the end user’s activity-patterns are needed in order to utilize the full potential of the Infiniband based networking infrastructure. This contribution contains a detailed report on the series of tests and evaluation activities performed within the RACF over the last year in order to evaluate a Mellanox 4X FDR Infiniband based networking architecture (provided with an oversubscribed tree topology) as a potential alternative networking solution for both the RHIC and ATLAS data processing farms of the RACF, as well as the existing dCache and future Ceph based storage systems associated with them. Results of the price/performance comparison of such a networking system with a competing solution based on the 10 GbE technology (provided with non-blocking fabric topology) for a HEP/NP data processing farm consisting of 1500 compute nodes are presented. Job placement optimizations in Condor for the offline data processing farm of the PHENIX experiment were implemented in order to demonstrate a sample user activity-pattern that more optimally utilizes the Infiniband-based networking solution. The results of using those optimizations in production for the PHENIX experiment over the last 9 months are presented.

        EEX: ESnet Extension to Europe and ESnet support for the LHC Community 30m
        The ESnet Extension to Europe (EEX) project is building out the ESnet backbone in to Europe. The goal of the project is to provide dedicated transatlantic network services that support U.S. DOE funded science. The EEX physical infrastructure build will be substantially completed before the end of December. Initial services will be provided to BNL, FERMI and CERN while the infrastructure is being built out and tested. EEX services will be expanded, following the build, to serve all current ESnet sites and the U.S. LHC community including some computing centers at U.S. Universities. This talk will cover the EEX architecture, schedule, and services, and include initial thoughts about what universities will need to do to take advantage of this opportunity.

        After several years investigation of trends in Identity Management (IdM), the eXtreme Scale Identity Management (XSIM) project has concluded there is little reason for resource providers to provide IdM functions for research collaborations or even for many groups within the institution. An improved user experience and decreased cost can be achieved with "a small amount of programming."

        Using XRootD to Minimize Hadoop Replication 30m
        We have developed an XRootD extension to Hadoop at UCSD that allows a site to significantly free local storage space by taking advantage of the file redundancy already provided by the XRootD Federation. Rather than failing when a corrupt portion of a file is accessed, the hdfs-xrootd-fallback system retrieves the segment from another site using XRootD, thus serving the original file to the end user seamlessly. These XRootD-fetched blocks are then cached locally, so subsequent accesses to the same segment do not require wide area network access. A second process is responsible for comparing the fetched blocks with corrupt blocks in Hadoop, and injects the cached blocks back into the cluster. This on-demand healing allows a site admin to relax the file replication number, commonly required to ensure availability. The system has been put into production at the UCSDT2 since March of 2014, and we finished implementing the healing portion in September. The added resiliency of the hdfs-xrootd-fallback system has allowed us to free 236 TB in our local storage facility.

The very successful beta phase of the service demonstrated high demand in the community for such easily accessible cloud storage solution. Integration of Cernbox service with the EOS storage backend is the next step towards providing sync and share capabilities for scientific and engineering use-cases. In this report we will present lessons learnt from the beta phase of the Cernbox service, key technical aspects of Cernbox/EOS integration and new, emerging usage possibilities. The latter include the ongoing integration of sync and share capabilities with the LHC data analysis tools and transfer services.

        In this contribution we give a set of hints for the performance tuning of the upcoming DPM releases, and we show what one can achieve by looking at different graphs taken from the DPM nightly performance tests. Our focus is on the HTTP/WebDAV and Xrootd protocols and the newer "dmlite" software framework, and some of these hints may give some benefit also to older, legacy protocol implementations. Our goal is to make sure that single-VO and multi-VO DPM sites can join HEP and non-HEP computing models and HTTP and Xrootd federations, while giving the needed level of performance and the best system administration experience.

        New High Availability Storage at PDSF 20m
        The PDSF Cluster at NERSC has been providing a data-intensive computing resource for experimental high energy particle and nuclear physics experiments (currently Alice, ATLAS, STAR, ICECUBE, MAJORANA) since 1996. Storage is implemented as a GPFS cluster built out of a variety of commodity hardware (Dell, Raidinc, Supermicro storage and servers). Recently we increased its capacity by 500TB by adding two file systems using NetApp E5600 series storage directly SAS attached to a pair of servers in a high availability configuration. Data IO routes to the cluster through dual 10Gb Ethernet. A 1Gb private network is used for monitoring and management. We will describe the configuration, share observations from the deployment process and provide the initial performance results. One of the new file systems was used to replace the back-end of the Tier3 ATLAS Storage Element (Bestman in gateway mode). We will share our experiences related to that move.

        Developing Nagios code to suspend checks during planned outages 20m
        Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory/NERSC Division Developing Nagios code to suspend checks during planned outages. Raymond E. Spence NERSC currently supports more than 13,000 computation nodes spread over six supercomputing or clustered systems. These systems access cumulatively more than 13.5PB of disk space via thousands of network interfaces. This environment enables scientists from anywhere on the planet to login, run code and thereby to conduct science at elite levels. Scientists depend on NERSC for 24x7 availability and NERSC personnel in turn depend on industrial-strength system administration tools for our support efforts. Since monitoring everything from our largest system to the last network uplink is a chief concern at NERSC we chose several years ago to employ Nagios for our monitoring solution. Nagios is a mature product with a great degree of flexibility. Although NERSC has found the free, open source Nagios version sufficient in many ways we had eventually tired of one specific hole in this tool’s arsenal. The hole NERSC found in Nagios’ configuration involves planned downtime. Any Nagios user eventually comes to know where to point and click to acknowledge alerts and twiddle other Nagios switches. However, when it comes to running large systems with multiple monitored services per node, point and click solutions do not scale. Like any supercomputing center NERSC has many planned downtimes of varying size throughout the year. Unfortunately we found no obvious path to configure Nagios to temporarily turn off checks on a to-be downed resource. NERSC then began writing code to communicate directly with Nagios to suspend these checks. Over the past year NERSC has produced scripts which configure Nagios to respectively obey a planned downtime, remove a planned downtime and to list scheduled downtimes. Further, each downtime can cover any number of services running on any number of nodes. We used our dedicated Physics cluster, PDSF, as our test bed and first production system for the scripts. Managing planned outages on PDSF aided debugging the code and how to avoid misuse of its various configuration options. Today NERSC system managers can use our Nagios downtime scripts to quickly and easily accommodate downtime for anything Nagios monitors. Our downtime tool has saved a mountain of both point and click tasks and avoided the risky last resort of manually disabling Nagios checks. NERSC wishes to present these Nagios downtime scripts and describe more fully how this code has aided our support efforts.

        DataBase on Demand : insight how to build your on DBaaS 25m
        Inspired on different database as a service, DBaas, providers, the database group at CERN has developed a platform to allow CERN user community to run a database instance with database administrator privileges providing a full toolkit that allows the instance owner to perform backup/ point in time recoveries, monitoring specific database metrics, start/stop of the instance and uploading/downloading specific logging or configuration files. With about 150 instances Oracle (11g and 12c), MySQL and PostgreSQL the platform has been designed and proofed to be flexible to run different RDBMS vendors and to scale up. Initially running on virtual machines, OracleVM, the instances are represented as objects in the management database toolset, making it independent of its physical representation. Nowadays instances run on physical servers together with virtual machines. A high availability solution has been implemented using Oracle cluster ware. This talk explains how we have built this platform, different technologies involved, actual user interface, command execution based on a database queue, backups based on snapshots, and possible future evolution (Linux containers, storage replication, OpenStack, Puppet,…).

        The adoption of cloud technologies by the LHC experiments is currently focused on IaaS, more specifically the ability to dynamically create virtual machines on demand. This talk provides an overview of how this alternative approach for resource provision fits into the existing workflows used by the experiments. It shows that in order to fully exploit this approach, solutions are required in the areas of image management, capacity management, monitoring, accounting, pilot job frameworks and supporting services. Each of those areas is covered in more detail to explain the various architectural choices and the rational for the decisions made. Finally, a general overview of the state of adoption within each experiment is given that describes the ongoing integration with their individual frameworks.

        Evolution of WLCG monitoring 30m
        The WLCG monitoring system provides a solid and reliable solution that has supported LHC computing activities and WLCG operations during the first years of LHC data-taking. The current challenge consists of ensuring that the WLCG monitoring infrastructure copes with the constant increase of monitoring data volume and complexity (new data-transfer protocols, new dynamic types of resource providers - cloud computing). At the same time, simplification of the monitoring system is desirable in order to reduce maintenance and operational costs. The current evolution of the system aims to achieve these two goals: decrease the complexity of the system and ensure its scalability and performance with the steady increase of monitoring information. The presentation will describe the new WLCG monitoring platform including the new technology stack for large-scale data analytics.
