All Computing systems are composed of a number core abstractions and ancillary services. The following lists some of these for the RCS. These continue to evolve as the RCS platform stabilizes and some of the links may be of more historical interest.

Misc Information


Processes and Files

  • Stage - meta-scheduling administration and support for UABgrid
  • Files - file storage engine administration and support for grid job management
  • Platform - many of the resources are operated as virtual machines. These pages document this configuration.
  • StorageCity - Storage needs vary widely across research groups, the "storage city" captures this reality and identifies ways data storage resources can be used across the grid


Accounting and Reporting

  • Accounting and Reporting - improving capability to report utilization stats and provide useful accounting data for end-users and decision support for capacity planning.
