Welcome to EGI Interoperations,

This is an activity funded in the framework of the SA1 task TSA1.3, which takes care of the integration of EGI with European Distributed Computing Infrastructures (DCIs). The purpose of this activity is to ensure that the operations of Resource Infrastructures based on different grid middleware stacks and/or architectures can interwork at different interface levels: monitoring, accounting, support and operations.

For all grid middlewares you can find a Task force, a unit established to work on a single defined task - integration of given middleware with EGI.

Milestones describing integration activity results and plans:

Integration areas 

Integration covers following areas:

  1. Management - integration with Grid Configuration Database [GOCDB] (
    • e.g. creation of a service type
  2. Monitoring - integration with Service Availability Monitoring [SAM]
    • development of monitoring probes
    • integration of probes into SAM release
    • integration of probes with Ava/Rel profile
  3. Accounting - integration with EGI Accounting Infrastructure
    • enabling all the accounting data to be collected in one place for a unified view
  4. Support - integration with EGI Helpdesk [GGUS] (
    • creation of support unit and using it to provide support
  5. Dashboard - integration with Operations Portal (
    • integration of probes into Operations Tests pool
  6. Documentation - integration with existing operations procedures
    • integration with Resource Center OLA
    • integration with Resource Center registration and certyfication procedure
      • creation of how to manually test the middleware
  7. Information System - integration with EGI Information system

It was accepted that data would only be passed for requesting VOs.

Data is only passed from OSG to APEL for an agreed set of VOs.
Future work is needed in terms of SSM 2
migration and is planned for year four.
