Accounting repositories and portal

Overview: The Accounting repositories store computing (serial and parallel jobs), storage, and cloud resources accounting data collected from Resource Centres of the EGI Federation. Accounting information is gathered from distributed sensors into a central accounting repository where it is processed to generate summaries that are available through the EGI Accounting Portal. The Accounting Repository, based on the APEL software, has a MySQL database backend and needs to ensure the exchange of accounting information with peer e-Infrastructures.

The Accounting Portal receives and stores the site, user, and VO level summaries generated by the Accounting Repository and provides views via a web portal, for example, by aggregating sites in a country on custom time intervals. The databases are organized into a CPU record database, a User record database, and a topology database.
