Particle physics yesterday Particle physics has pushed the computing envelope ever since the early Particle physics yesterday Particle physics has pushed the computing envelope ever since the early days - though in the early days the envelope was smaller

Particle physics today • Today we have millions of extremely complicated events to interpret Particle physics today • Today we have millions of extremely complicated events to interpret

Particle physics tomorrow • Tomorrow the LHC will give us trillions of much more Particle physics tomorrow • Tomorrow the LHC will give us trillions of much more complicated events to interpret

What is our computing? • Basic tasks fairly simple – find tracks from set What is our computing? • Basic tasks fairly simple – find tracks from set of points, find particle momenta from track curvature, etc. • Data is pretty well constrained and homogenous. • But we need to do this on a big scale, for hundreds of millions of events.

Big is beautiful If all the data from the LHC in a year were Big is beautiful If all the data from the LHC in a year were written to CDs, and the CDs put in a pile, that pile would be 20 km high Commodity computing saved us in the 1990 s: PCs got cheap. But that’s not enough

The Grid Data analysis can only be achieved as a world-wide exercise using all The Grid Data analysis can only be achieved as a world-wide exercise using all available computing resources This needs a Grid: The UK Grid. PP project and EGEE across Europe

What is a Grid? Answer 1 (for journalists) The Grid is a virtual supercomputer What is a Grid? Answer 1 (for journalists) The Grid is a virtual supercomputer Answer 2 (for politicians) Computing coming out of a wall socket, just like electric power Answer 3 (for the rest of us) The Web is computers talking to computers, saying ‘Give me a certain document’. The Grid is computers talking to computers. They can say anything.

Issues Many computers available in computer centres Many people who want to use them Issues Many computers available in computer centres Many people who want to use them How do the people know the computers are there? What facilities they provide How do the computer centres know which users are allowed to do what? That users are who they say they are? Traditional solution; every user needs an account and password at every centre Does not scale to large numbers of computers and users

Solution – Grid certificates • User details encoded by the RSA algorithm from a Solution – Grid certificates • User details encoded by the RSA algorithm from a trusted Certificate Authority • Proves that whoever presents the certificate are who they say they are. (Modern analogue of the royal seal) • User needs only one Grid certificate – access everywhere • Led (in academia) by UK/European particle physicists /C=UK /O=e.

Solution - VOMS Users join ‘Virtual Organisations’ Centres negotiate with VOs for usage rights Solution - VOMS Users join ‘Virtual Organisations’ Centres negotiate with VOs for usage rights VO User VOMS system CENTRE UK VOMS system run from Manchester (Physics for Grid. PP, Computing for NGS). 500 users, 15 VOs, and growing

Solution: pool accounts Developed and implemented by Manchester physics Neither user nor centre wants Solution: pool accounts Developed and implemented by Manchester physics Neither user nor centre wants individual accounts Single account (‘griduser’) will lead to jobs deleting each others’ files Create generic accounts (ATLAS 001, ATLAS 002…) User assigned a generic account – can run jobs Account is linked to certificate name so there is an audit trail for antisocial behaviour

ATLAS trigger tests Large scale software tests cannot be done at CERN as only ATLAS trigger tests Large scale software tests cannot be done at CERN as only ~10 computers available Tests run at Manchester (400 CPUs) instead ATLAS monitoring and calibration Detectors need frequent calibrating to convert raw signals into useful co-ordinates correctly Computers at CERN dedicated to actual DAQ Solution: ship raw data to Manchester. Process. Ship calibration data back Successful large-scale tests show this is possible Detector 2000 CPUs Trigger CAL DATA DAQ Manchester Data storage Monitor
