This page provides information about the Virtual Team "Inter NGI Usage Report" aimed at providing a template for a regular (annual?) report giving an overview of the usage of the EGI infrastructure.

General Project Information

  • Leader: Torsten Antoni, NGI-DE/KIT
  • Mailing List: vt-egi-usage-report@mailman.egi.eu
  • Status: Active
  • Start Date: 10/Nov/2011
  • End Date: Expected to finish before the end of February 2012
  • Meetings:

Motivation

Providing a regular (annual?) report giving an overview of the usage of the EGI infrastructure, which could be used for promotional and mamagerial purposes

Output

The expected output of this project is a template for the report. this will enable a check if all the information that is needed for such a report is readily available or if some effort has to be put into providing this information.

Tasks

  • Task 1: Provide input for the report template (all members)
  • Task 2: Provide named individuals working on this(all members)
  • Task 3: Consolidate the input (team leader)
  • Task 4: Trigger checking of information availbility (team leader)

Resources

  • This wiki page for content collection

Progress

  • Task 1: No input received so far
  • Task 2: Initial members provided named individuals
  • Task 3: depends on Task 1
  • Task 4: depends on Task 3


Content Collection

Collection of questions that this report should answer. Please add your questions below:

  • which resources (e.g. percentage by country) were used by users from a specific NGI and how many (number of jobs, cpu-hours)
  • which VOs with users from a specific NGI are using EGI to what extent (number of jobs, cpu-hours)
  • how many users _not_ from a specific NGI are using the resources of that specific NGI and from which countries do these users come from?
  • indicators for collaboration through EGI: concrete examples for the added value for EGI users
  • which consequences would researchers in a NGI have, if that country is no longer part of EGI – would they be cut off from the European Grid?
  • why does a country (resp. the researchers in that country) need EGI?
  • which services of EGI are used by users from a specific NGI ?

Input from CH:

Input from HR:

Input from ES:

  • Each country should provide a publication list and a list of projects, funded in a peer-reviewed process in each country, whose work is being carried out using the Grid infrastructure. See for example http://www.es-ngi.es/proyectos.php

Preliminary ToC

Introduction

Why using EGI?

  • Benefits for User Communities, NGIs and Ressource Providers
  • Which services of EGI are used by users from a specific NGI
  • Why does a country (resp. the researchers in that country) need EGI?
  • Which consequences would researchers in a NGI have, if that country is no longer part of EGI – would they be cut off from the European Grid?

Scientific Use Cases

What is EGI used for?

  • Indicators for collaboration through EGI: concrete examples for the added value for EGI users
  • Examples of scientific results achieved through usage of EGI

User Community Specific Usage

Who uses EGI?

  • Which VOs with users from a specific NGI are using EGI to what extent (number of jobs, cpu-hours)

Inter NGI Usage Patterns

How is EGI used?

  • Which resources (e.g. percentage by country) were used by users from a specific NGI and how many (number of jobs, cpu-hours)
  • How many users _not_ from a specific NGI are using the resources of that specific NGI and from which countries do these users come from?
