HPDC 2009

Munich Germany
With the establishment of large scale multidisciplinary production Grid infrastructures such as the EGEE, OSG, DEISA, TeraGrid, or NAREGI, the monitoring of the state of the infrastructure as well as the accounting of its usage is becoming a vital issue in operating these infrastructures. This workshop is the fourth of the series on topics in production Grids that was initiated at HPDC-15 with the workshop on Management of Rights in Production Grids, followed by the workshop on Data Handling in Production Grids at HPDC-16 and the workshop on VO Management in Production Grids at HPDC-17. This workshop will bring together practitioners and researchers on all aspects of monitoring, logging and accounting (MLA) to discuss capabilities of existing technologies, identify areas where new functionalities are needed and explore how latest research results can be integrated into the software stack and procedures of production Grids. Special attention will be devoted to the security and privacy aspects of these services. Topics include, but are not restricted to: • MLA systems • Policies for MLA • Interoperability • Integration of MLA systems at different levels.
