Description

ALFA is a message queuing based framework for online and offline data processing. It is a flexible framework that supports an actor based computational model and allows to implement an experiment defined data model on top. The design of ALFA is modular with separate layers for data transport, process management and process deployment. Although still under ongoing development, ALFA is already being tested and used by different experiments in different stages of data processing as it offers an easy integration of heterogeneous hardware and software. Examples of ALFA usage in different stages of event processing will be presented; in a detector read-out as well as in an online reconstruction and in a pure offline world of detector simulations.
