grid monitoring infrastructure (executables and man pages)
The Network Weather Service is the de facto standard of the emerging Grid community to monitor the system availability. (the grid usually denotes any platform formed by the federation and aggregation of local resources between several organizations like universities).
Once you've deployed the relevant processes on each platform node, you can ask it for several metrics:
- about each host: - available CPU (both for incoming process and for already started ones) - free memory - free disk - about each host couple: - TCP connexion time, bandwidth and latency
Moreover, the NWS can predict future tendencies using statistical treatments on previous measurements.
This package installs the library, utilities and user documentation.
