Logging and Bookkeeping (LB) keeps a short-term trace of grid jobs as they
are processed by individual grid components. That trace is transformed into
single job status information available to grid users and monitoring systems
such as RTM or Dashboard. In production LB is used to track jobs managed by
gLite WMS but it is designed to support also other job types. We deployed LB
over PBS recently, there is an experimental Condor support.
We describe integration with CREAM, allowing native CREAM jobs to appear in
LB regardless of their submission channel (gLite WMS, directly, ...). There
are immediate benefits for the users -- job status information in homogeneous
way, and advanced LB features (notifications, complex queries), as well as
indirect ones -- native CREAM jobs are captured by high level monitoring
tools connected to LB.
We illustrate some technical details (involved components, CREAM-specific job
state machine in LB) and report on current state of this ongoing work.
Special requirements other than the set up mentioned in the CfA text.
