Compatibility with GGF schema

The overall approach followed by GLUE can be compared to the concepts behind the virtual topology in GGF schema.

In fact we try to shield physical aspects of the Grid into abstract entities, that we call Network Services and Domains.

GGF schema for characteristics should smoothly merge with GLUE one as for the description of observations (see GGF-DAMED-01-I).

Summarizing one "mapping" from GGF concepts to GLUE might consist in binding

  • Network Path to Network Service
  • Virtual Node to Domain

    The association between Domain and Network Service in GLUE schema should be inherited by the association Node and Network Path in GGF schema.
