home agenda accommodation (required) reading attendees
- continental breakfast (provided)
- lunch (provided)
- finish, dinner on your own
- lunch (provided)
We want you're thoughts in advance
- where is the problem
- what would components of an architecture be to solve end to end performance problems?
- prepare quick summary of own work (15 min max) for presentation
Annotated agenda without specific times
- First, discussion of scope: make sure we agree. In particular,
is there a line between this (network performance) work and "grid"
or "middleware" diagnostic measurement architecture.
- Discussion of outcomes. We intend to present some expected
outcomes here, with another discussion at the end of the day.
- A whitepaper
- A (set of) architecture(s) that can be refined later
- How existing projects fit into architecture
- Top-down: get a feel for architectures.
Short presentations on existing proposed architectures. (15 min each)
- Bottom-up: commonality in existing projects
Short presentations from implementers on existing projects (10 min each)
- AMP & PMA
- SLAC monitoring work
- Pipes (including database/outreach work)
- PSC work TAAD, new projects
- ANML work (Steve Wallace's IU lab)
- LBL work: SCNM, NTAF
- Identify common themes in work.
- Discussion of "use cases" -- different people's view of the problem.
See different people's interpretations, come up with a single consistent
(set of) view(s).
- Discussion of different views of architecture. Common themes?
Want, in particular:
- common cases
- unique cases
- Look for single architecture. However, aim is not to find single thing
to force down people's throats, but see if we can agree on common blocks.
- Discussion of the open research areas (starting with the holes?)
what is the right model?
- resource discovery [how find boxes]
- Relationship to other groups
- Areas: Grid, Middleware, Security
- Discussion on near-term things that we can do for each other:
building our own community
- Recommendation on infrastructure support [pure research projects
tend to die off]
- Discuss how to produce outcomes.
