dCache Web Monitoring
THIS PROJECT IS CURRENTLY IN BETA STATE
The monitoring system for dCache is built as a separate application using Java servlet technology and works in the Apache Tomcat servlet container. It consists from two parts - the first one works with the database where dCache system puts the detailed information about the data transfers, and the second one is a presentation layer.
The monitoring system builds the set of plots for various datasets and various time intervals - day, week, month, year... The datasets, the time intervals and data presentation are configurable via XML configuration files. The changes in the configuration can be activated remotely by the system administrator.
The total number of plots varies from system to system and currently is about 50 - 60. This system is in the development for a several months and is used by CDF and CMS dCache systems at Fermilab.
If you want to try it for your dCache installation you can find the source and binary RPMs using the links on this page. Install binary RPM and look at INSTALL and install.sh files in the directory /opt/d-cache/web-dcache. The install.sh script is very simple at the moment, it does not check anything, so use with care!
Take a look at two working installations for CDF and CMS experiments at Fermilab using the links on this page.
This project is under active development, the code is changing frequently, some parts of the code will be changed considerably, some parts can disappear.
