Parallel Talk Computing Technology for Physics Research Friday, 26 February - Computing Technology for Physics Research


Dr Fons Rademakers (CERN)


With PROOF, the parallel ROOT Facility, being widely adopted for LHC data analysis, it becomes more and more important to understand the different parameters that can be tuned to make the system perform optimally. In this talk we will describe a number of "best practices" to get the most out of your PROOF system, based on feedback from several pilot setups. We will describe different cluster configurations (CPU, memory, network, HDD, SSD), PROOF and xrootd configuration options, running a dedicated PROOF system or using PROOF on Demand (PoD) on batch systems. This talk will be beneficial for people setting up Tier-3/4 analysis clusters.
