GlueDomains: concepts@work

Gluedomains is a prototype implementation of the concepts introduced so far: deployment is being carried out by these days.

We envision a best effort oriented approach, where theodolites run 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):

GlueDomains database

Multihomed storage

up: Monitoring the Connectivity of a Grid
