  • to assess the status of accounting, and the developments needed to integrate what exists with the EGI accounting infrastructure
  • to integrate QCG support activities into the EGI mainstream support tasks (1st level, 2nd level and 3rd level)

Monitoring Status

QCG services deployed in the PL-Grid infrastructure report usage records to the national accounting system called BAT. Nagios probes are available and will be included in SAM Update 18 (expected in end of June).

Accounting Status

Jan 2012: QCG services deployed in the PL-Grid infrastructure report usage records to the national accounting system called BAT. From the technical point of view it should not be too difficult to implement a new module reporting also to APEL or any other service. Contact: Tomasz Piontek


QCG services have their own types in GOCDB

  • QCG.Computing
  • QCG.Notification
