ARC 15.03 update 18

The Advanced Resource Connector (ARC) middleware is an Open Source software solution to enable distributed computing infrastructures with the emphasis on processing large volumes of data. ARC provides an abstraction layer over computational resources, complete with input and output data movement functionalities. The security model of ARC is identical to that of Grid solutions, relying on delegation of user credentials and the concept of Virtual Organisations. ARC also provides client tools, as well as API in C++, Python and Java.

Release notes

This is a bugfix release, addressing bugs discovered since release 15.03u17.

There are 3 fixed bugs in this version of ARC. These involve the infoprovider, EMI-ES submission interface, and multicore jobs use of scratchdir. See more details below.

In addition memory leaks have been found and fixed, in Globus code and elsewhere in A-Rex.

NorduGrid ARC 15.03 has received an update to:

  • core, clients, CE, Infosys and gridftp - from version 5.4.1 to 5.4.2
  • documents - from 2.0.18 to 2.0.19

Gangliarc, Nagios plugins and metapackages are unchanged.

DPM 1.10.0

The Disk Pool Manager (DPM) is a lightweight storage solution for grid sites. It offers a simple way to create a disk-based grid storage element and supports relevant protocols (SRM, gridFTP, RFIO) for file management and access. It focus on manageability (ease of installation, configuration, low effort of maintenance), while providing all required functionality for a grid storage solution (support for multiple disk server nodes, different space types, multiple file replicas in disk pools)
