Summary: Paper ID: 234 1
This practices and experience paper describes the
coordination, design, implementation, availability, and
performance of the Pacific Rim Applications and Grid
Middleware Assembly (PRAGMA) Grid Testbed.
Applications in high-energy physics, genome
annotation, quantum computational chemistry, wildfire
simulation, and protein sequence alignment have
driven the middleware requirements, and the testbed
provides a mechanism for international users to share
software beyond the essential, de facto standard
Globus core. In this paper, we describe how human
factors, resource availability and performance issues
have affected the middleware, applications and the
testbed design. We also describe how middleware
components in grid monitoring, grid accounting, grid
Remote Procedure Calls, grid-aware file systems, and
grid-based optimization have dealt with some of the
major characteristics of our testbed. We also briefly
