Sites batch system status

This page has been set up to collect information from GridPP sites regarding their batch, middleware and storage system plans. The information will help with wider considerations and strategy. The table seeks the following:

  1. Site name
  2. Batch/CE system (the main batch system and CE you are intending to use in GridPP5. This might be one that you are testing as a replacement for, say, Torque/CREAM)
  3. Shared, non-CE? Yes/No (Is the batch system shared with users who don’t access it through the grid CE?)
  4. Shared filesystem? No/Name (Do users rely on a shared filesystem? e.g. Lustre. i.e. that couldn’t be replaced with local filesystems on worker nodes. Which one?)
  5. Non-LHC, non GridPP DIRAC VOs? No/Top3 (Do you support VOs, e.g. from EGI, that aren’t LHC experiments and don't use the GridPP DIRAC service. Please list the top 3.) (Please note that pheno and SNO+ use the GridPP dirac instance.)
  6. Storage system? No/Name (dCache, DPM, StoRM)
  7. Non-LHC storage? No/Top3 (Do you provide storage to non-LHC projects? Please list the top 3.)
  8. Local storage? Yes/No (Does your grid storage also provide space for local users, that they access interactively or in non-grid batch jobs?)
Site Batch/CE system Shared, non-CE? Shared filesystem? Non-LHC, non GridPP DIRAC VOs? Storage system Non-LHC storage? Local storage? . Notes
UKI-LT2-Brunel Arc/HTCondor No No ILC,Pheno, Biomed DPM yes .
UKI-LT2-IC-HEP CREAM/SGE No No ilc, biomed, mice dCache LZ (UK Data Centre), T2K, comet Yes (CMS) .

UKI-LT2-QMUL SLURM/Cream NO(1) YES(Lustre) Biomed, ILC, Icecube, CEPC, Pheno, StoRM Yes (SNO+, T2K) Yes . (1) very limited local usage of batchsystem for special workloads
UKI-LT2-RHUL Torque/cream CE, HTCondor/ARC test No No ILC,Pheno, Biomed, dune DPM Yes, biomed,pheno No .

UKI-NORTHGRID-LANCS-HEP SonOfGridEngine/CREAM, ARC eventually Yes home/sandbox on NFS, but don't work in them, local users use Panasus uboone. DPM Yes, Sno+ T2K No . We actively try to support all UK dirac VOs. The site is treated as part of the University's "High End Computing" facility which we have admin rights and duties for.
UKI-NORTHGRID-LIV-HEP HTCondor/ARC, VAC No No ilc, dune, biomed, t2k, na62, sno+ DPM t2k, sno+,biomed No . We support 25 small VOs in total, using a python tool ( to make config (arc/condor/cream/torque/maui/user/groups/vac/argus etc.) from a central data file.
UKI-NORTHGRID-MAN-HEP HTCondor/ARC No No Biomed, ILC, Icecube DPM LSST, biomed, pheno Yes .

UKI-NORTHGRID-SHEF-HEP Torque/cream CE, HTCondor/ARC under test No No LZ, dune, t2k, biomed, pheno, sno+ DPM dune? yes .

UKI-SCOTGRID-DURHAM SLURM/ARC YES YES Pheno, ILC DPM YES YES . A Local Group has direct submission to SLURM, Local Pheno users have NFS Available as Home Space.

UKI-SCOTGRID-ECDF ARC/SGE YES YES(NFS) ilc DPM ilc, hyper-k NO . We have shared use of resources on cluster managed by the university. NFS is only used for transferring data to WN.

UKI-SCOTGRID-GLASGOW HTCondor/ARC No/Maybe Yes/NFS Pheno,ILC,NA62 DPM Yes Yes . Local University users use direct ARC submission, but have local storage provided via NFS. Usage is low (not in top 3) but does happen. Investigating allowing local user to directly submit to HTCondor pool.
UKI-SOUTHGRID-BHAM-HEP Torque/CREAM No No ILC, Biomed, Pheno DPM NA62, ILC, Biomed No . In the process of moving the vast majority/all of the resources to VAC.

UKI-SOUTHGRID-BRIS HTCondor/ARC Yes No but partly Yes(1) ILC & soon LZ DmLite+HDFS ThinkSo, DrK will confirm/deny Yes . (1) they prefer to have NFS-mounted /users/$user & /software but can live without it. I think.


later HTCondor/ARC?

No No ILC DPM No No . Batch/CE decision could change depending on what is the least effort to maintain

UKI-SOUTHGRID-RALPP HTCondor/ARC Yes Yes NFS and dCache ILC, Biomed, T2K dCache Yes Yes .

UKI-SOUTHGRID-SUSX Univa Grid Engine/Cream YES YES (Lustre over IB) NO StoRM YES (SNO+) YES .
