Globus Tool Kit Tips

Oracle RAC Cluster Tips by Burleson Consulting

Oracle Globus Tool Kit

Oracle is also actively participating in open source community efforts, working with Global Grid Forum to help define grid standards. Oracle has developed Globus extensions and they are available as the Oracle Globus Toolkit. The Globus Toolkit is a set of useful components that can be used to build Grid applications.

The Globus Toolkit is the de facto standard for doing Grid computing among early Grid adopters. Oracle GDK (OGDK) includes the Globus Toolkit and additional Oracle components to deliver an integrated product ready to use. The first version of Oracle GDK implements an open source, or reference version, of the APIs of the Globus Toolkit mapped to Oracle APIs. Grid application developers can use these components using their C APIs or command-line tools. Some key components of the Globus toolkit include:

Globus Resource Allocation Manager (GRAM): GRAM provides resource allocation and process creation, monitoring, and management services. GRAM implementations map requests expressed in a Resource Specification Language (RSL) into commands understood by local schedulers and computers.

Grid Security Infrastructure (GSI):  GSI provides a single-sign-on, run-anywhere authentication service, with support for local control of access rights and mappings from global to local user identities.

Monitoring and Discovery Service (MDS): This service provides a uniform framework for providing and accessing system configuration and status information, such as compute server configuration, network status, or the locations of replicated datasets. MDS is an extensible Grid information service that combines data discovery mechanisms with the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP). MDS has two components: Grid Index Information Service (GIIS) and Grid resource information service (GRIS). GIIS provides aggregate information about a set of resources. GRIS provides information about an individual resource.

Global Access to Secondary Storage (GASS): GASS implements a variety of automatic and programmer-managed data movement and data access strategies, enabling programs running at remote locations to read and write local data.
