The VINCI Dynamic Circuit Services

Time 01/22/08 09:45AM-10:05AM

Session Abstract

The VINCI services developed in the MonALISA framework will be deployed on the USLHCNet, and will provide dynamic circuit services for high-performance data transfers in the HEP community. The system is built as a set of distributed agents and services, guaranteeing scalability in a natural way. Data transfers are scheduled based on their class and priority. Pre-emptible transfers will be adjusted in the allocated bandwidth using LCAS, to give high-priority ones the needed resources e.g. in case of a link failure. The system includes an End-Host Agent in order to configure and tune the end-system for high-performance transfer. Pervasive monitoring using the MonALISA system of distributed monitoring agents provides the means for easy problem finding and resolution. For full end-to-end circuit provisioning we are planing to interface to Internet2's DCN and ESnet's OSCARS systems, as well as Lambda Station and TeraPaths.
