WLCG relies on the network as a critical part of its infrastructure and therefore needs to guarantee effective network usage and prompt detection and resolution of any network issues, including connection failures, congestion and traffic routing. The OSG Networking Area is a partner of the WLCG effort and is focused on being the primary source of networking information for its partners and constituents. We will report on the changes and updates that have occurred since the last HEPiX meeting.
The primary areas to cover include the status of and plans for the WLCG/OSG perfSONAR infrastructure, the WLCG Throughput Working Group and the activities in the IRIS-HEP and SAND projects.
