G. von Laszewski, J. DiCarlo, B. Allcock, "A Portal for Visualizing Grid Usage," Preprint ANL/MCS-P1362-0806, August 2006. [pdf]
We introduce a framework for measuring the use of Grid services and exposing simple summary data to an authorized set of Grid users through a JSR168-enabled portal. The se4nsor framework has been integrated into the Globus Toolkit and allows Grid administrators to have access to a mechanism helping with report and usage statistics. Although the original focus was the reporting of actions in relationships to GridFTP services, the usage service has been expanded to report also on use of other Grid services.
