PDSF, the Parallel Distributed Systems Facility has been in continuous operation since 1996, serving high energy physics research. The cluster is a tier-1 site for Star, a tier-2 site for Alice and a tier-3 site for Atlas.
We'll give a status report of the PDSF cluster and the migration into Cori, the primary computing resource at NERSC. We'll go into how we tried to ease the process by...
News and updates from BNL activities since the Barcelona meeting
I will present recent developments of the Canadian T1 and T2.
We will present an update on AGLT2, focusing on the changes since the Fall 2018 report.
The primary topics to cover include the update on VMware, update of dCache, status of new purchased hardware, encountered problems and solutions on improving the CPU utilization of our HTCondor system.
As a major WLCG/OSG T2 site, the University of Wisconsin-Madison CMS T2 has consistently been delivering highly reliable and productive services towards large scale CMS MC production/processing, data storage, and physics analysis for last 13 years. The site utilizes high throughput computing (HTCondor), highly available storage system (Hadoop), scalable distributed software systems (CVMFS),...
Updates on the activities at T2_US_Nebraska over the past year. Topics will cover the site configuration and tools we use, troubles we face in daily operation, and contemplation of what the future might hold for sites like ours.
We would like to report an update of the computing research center at KEK including the Grid system from the last HEPiX Fall 2018 for the data taking period of SuperKEKB and J-PARC experiments in 2019. The network connectivity of KEK site has been improved by the replacement of network equipment and security devices in September 2018. The situation of the international network for Japan will...
The Tokyo Tier-2 center, which is located in the International Center for Elementary Particle Physics (ICEPP) at the University of Tokyo, is providing computing resources for the ATLAS experiment in the WLCG. Almost all hardware devices of the center are supplied by a lease, and are upgraded in every three years. This hardware upgrade was performed in December 2018. In this presentation,...
At CENPA at the University of Washington we have a heterogeneous rocks 7 cluster of
about 135 nodes containing 1250 cores. We will present the current status and issues.
Updates from JLab since the Autumn 2018 meeting at PIC in Barcelona.
News and updates from IHEP since the last HEPiX Workshop. In this talk we would like to present the status of IHEP site including computing farm, HPC, IHEPCloud, Grid, data storage ,network and so on.
News from CERN since the HEPiX Autumn/Fall 2018 workshop in Barcelona.
An update on what's going on at the Italian Tier1 center
Site report with updates at Nikhef since last year.
An update on activities at STFC-RAL.
Brief overview of activities at DESY since the last site report
We will give an overview of the site including our recent network redesign. We will dedicate a part of the talk to disk servers: report on the newest additions as well as upgraded old hardware. We will also share experience with our distributed HT-Condor batch system.
Ongoing developments at GSI/FAIR: diggers, Lustres, procurements, relocations, operating systems
Diamond Light Source is an X-ray synchrotron light source co-located with STFC RAL in the UK. This is the first site report from Diamond at HEPiX since 2015. The talk will discuss recent changes, current status and future plans as well as the odd disaster story thrown in for good measure.
Diamond has a new data centre, new storage and new compute as well as new staff and a few forays into...
