gwd.conf file

WRF4G Grid Resources are currently defined by GridWay Drivers. Therefore, if you want to access to Grid Resources, you must configure gwd.conf. This file is located under $WRF4G_LOCATION/opt/drm4g_gridway/etc directory.

WRF4G GridWay Drivers Available

The following drivers are included in WRF4G:

  • Information Driver:
    • BDII (gw_im_mad_bdii)
  • Transfer Driver:
    • Dummy Transfer driver (gw_tm_mad_dummy)
  • Execution Drivers:
    • GRAM2 (gw_em_mad_gram2)
    • CREAM (gw_em_mad_cream)

Required Middleware

The following middlewares should be installed to use the corresponding drivers:

  • Globus Toolkit 2 and above, and gLite 3.1 (GRAM2-based)
  • UMD1 or UMD2 (CREAM-based)

Configuration options Divers

Next steps describe a specific configuration of drivers for Gisela Infrastructure. However, the examples below can be applied to any VO.

In file $WRF4G_LOCATION/opt/drm4g_gridway/etc/gwd.conf:

# Example MAD Configuration for GISELA
# GT2 
IM_MAD = gisela_gt2:gw_im_mad_bdii:-q (GlueCEAccessControlBaseRule=VO\  -s
EM_MAD = em_gt2:gw_em_mad_gram2::rsl_nsh
TM_MAD = tm_gt2:gw_tm_mad_dummy:-u gsiftp\://

IM_MAD = gisela_cream:gw_im_mad_bdii:-q (GlueCEAccessControlBaseRule=VO\  -s
TM_MAD = tm_cream:gw_tm_mad_dummy:-g

There are two options for the configuration of IM MAD:

  • -q: it is possible to configure a GridWay instance to only use queues authorized to your VO by filtering them.
  • -s: information server in a hierarchical configuration.
    IM_MAD = glisela_gt2:gw_im_mad_bdii:-q (GlueCEAccessControlBaseRule=VO\ -s

There are two options for the configuration of the TM MAD:

  • -g: starts a GASS server for each user.
    TM_MAD = tm_gt2:gw_tm_mad_dummy:-g
  • -u: specifies the URL of a GridFTP server running in the client. For example:
    TM_MAD = tm_gt2:gw_tm_mad_dummy:-u gsiftp\://

For more information about MAD configuration see GridWay Configuration Guide

Accessing the VOMS servers

In order to use the Grid Resources, users should iniatilize the proxy through voms server:

[user@ui~]$ voms-proxy-init --voms
Cannot find file or dir: /oceano/gmeteo/users/carlos/.glite/vomses
Enter GRID pass phrase:
Your identity: /DC=es/DC=irisgrid/O=unican/
