The operational tools information page provides links to EGI central operations tools, to documentation and gives an overview of the current NGI deployment plans of local tool instances.

Tool Description Link Documentation
Operations portal The Operations Portal provides a view, based on the role of the viewer, to information about the status of resources and grid services. The portal provides following tools: VO registration, VO management, VO dashboard, COD dashboard, Operation dashboard, Security dashboard, broadcast and downtime notification mechanism. Operations Portal
Service Availability Monitoring SAM is a system for monitoring distributed grid services, which are part of the EGI infrastructure. The service covers storage and computation of status and availability of services (OPS VO), generation of EGI league monthly report, web interface (MyEGI) and web APIs to access stored data retrieval. SAM Instances (This page, kept for historic reasons, lists the old NGIs Nagios servers and MyEGI portals. All these instances was dismissed because the monitoring is operated centrally) SAM
GOCDB The Grid Configuration Database (GOCDB) is the central input system for recording Grid topology information. This includes the Sites that contribute to the production Grid infrastructure, their associated Service Endpoints, service downtime information and contact details for participants who maintain the infrastructure. It is accessed by all project actors (end-users, site managers, NGI mangers, support teams, VO managers), by other tools and by third party middleware in order to fetch the Grid topology and its status. GOCDB
GGUS The Global Grid User Support (GGUS) system is the primary means by which users request support when they are using the grid. The GGUS system is the main support access point for the EGI project. The GGUS system creates a trouble ticket to record the request and tracks the ticket from creation through to solve. GGUS
Accounting portal The accounting infrastructure is a complex system that involves various sensors in different regions, all publishing data to a central repository. The data is processed, summarized and displayed in the accounting portal, which acts as a common interface to the different accounting record providers and presents a homogeneous view of the data gathered and a user-friendly access to understanding resource utilization. Accounting
 The EGI Applications Database (AppDB) is a central service that stores and provides to the public, information about:
  •     software solutions in the form of native software products and/or virtual appliances,
  •     the programmers and the scientists who are involved, and
  •     publications derived from the registered solutions
