Enabling Grids for E-sciencE [EGEE-II]

Project Description

The Research Institute for Symbolic Computation (RISC) of the Johannes Kepler University in Linz is together with the Department for Graphics and Parallel Processing (GUP) and in cooperation with the Upper Austrian Research (UAR) department for medical informatics in Hagenberg (as an external partner) participating in the European Enabling Grids for E-sciencE (EGEE-II) project running from April 2006 to March 2008.

abstract = {In this paper, we compare two implementations of a grid-based software system on the grid middleware Globus Toolkit 4 and gLite, respectively. This system called ``Grid-Enabled SEE++'' is a grid-based simulation software that supports the diagnosis and treatment of certain eye motility disorders (strabismus). First, we developed a parallel version of the software with the help of Globus 4. Since we met with some limitations of Globus 4, we also designed and developed a version of SEE++ based on gLite. We focus on the differences between the initial Globus version and the gLite version of our software system and report on some comparative benchmark results.},

abstract = {``Grid-Enabled SEE++'' is based on the SEE++ software system for the biomechanicalsimulation of the human eye. ``Grid-Enabled SEE++'' extends SEE++ inseveral steps in order to develop an efficient grid-based tool for``Evidence Based Medicine'', which supports surgeons in choosingoptimal surgery techniques for the treatment of certain eye motilitydisorders.Recently, we refined the design of ``Grid-Enabled SEE++'' and weworked on an extended version of the software, which is able to utilize the``Web Service Resource Framework'' architecture of theGlobus Toolkit 4.Since we met with some limitations of Globus 4, we also designed aversion of ``Grid-Enabled SEE++'' compatible with the gLitegrid middleware.In this paper, we report on our experience of porting a grid applicationto Globus 4 and gLite, describe the problems we encountered and discusspossible solution strategies. This may assist the porting of otherapplications to the grid using these middleware products.},
