GlueDomains: concepts@work

Gluedomains is a prototype implementation of the concepts introduced so far: it is included in the official Italian release of LCG 6.0.

We envision a best effort only Grid, where theodolites run active network monitoring tools.

Globus MDS is used to make network service characteristics available to users (typically, grid aware applications or Grid monitoring tools like GridICE).


The overall architecture is split in 4 modules (disregarding monitoring tools):
