=== Using Grid'5000 for on-demand extension of an OpenNebula installation ===
 
[http://vimeo.com/39257324 This video] shows how the [http://www.bonfire-project.eu BonFIRE project]'s testbed operated in Rennes can be extended on-demand over Grid'5000 resources. This is a powerfull demonstration of [[KaVALN]] usage and of how Grid'5000 capabilities can be exposed to specific users with the [https://api.grid5000.fr Grid'5000 API]. Here Grid'5000 resources are dynamically added to an OpenNebula installation.

=== Grid'5000 taking part in the [http://sc11.supercomputing.org/schedule/event_detail.php?evid=wksp121 '''Support for Experimental Computer Science Workshop'''] at SC11 ===
 
A few speakers with experience gained using Grid'5000 will be taking part in the [http://sc11.supercomputing.org/schedule/event_detail.php?evid=wksp121 ''Support for Experimental Computer Science Workshop''] at SC11. This should be of interest to all Grid'5000 users. Abstract reads : The ability to conduct consistent, controlled and repeatable large-scale experiments in all areas of computer science related to parallel, large-scale or distributed computing and networking is critical to the future and development of Computer Science. Yet conducting such experiments is still too often a challenge for researchers, students and practitioners due to unavailability of dedicated resources, inability to create controlled experimental conditions, and variability in software. Availability, repeatability, and open sharing of electronic products are all still a challenge. This workshop will bring together scientists involved in building and operating two infrastructures dedicated to supporting Computer Science experiments, Grid 5000 in France and Future Grid in the United States, to discuss challenges and solutions in this space. Our objectives are to share experiences and knowledge related to supporting large-scale experiments conducted on experimental infrastructures, solicit requirements, and discuss methodologies and opportunities created by emerging technologies.

* '''Grid'5000''' is a scientific instrument for the study of large scale parallel and distributed systems. It aims at providing a '''highly reconfigurable, controlable and monitorable experimental platform''' to its users. The initial aim (circa 2003) was to reach 5000 processors in the platform. It has been reframed at 5000 cores, and was reached during winter 2008-2009.
 
* The infrastructure of Grid'5000 is geographically distributed on different sites hosting the instrument, initially 9 sites in France (10 since 2011). Porto Alegre, Brazil is now officially becoming the first site abroad.

The current plans are to extend from the 9 initial sites each with 100 to a thousand PCs, connected by the [http://www.renater.fr RENATER] Education and Research Network to a bigger platform including a few sites outside France not necessarily connected through a dedicated network connection. Sites in Brazil and Luxembourg should join shortly, and Reims has now joined.
 
 
 
 
All sites in France are connected to [http://www.renater.fr RENATER] with a 10Gb/s link, except Reims, for the time linked through a 1Gb/s

[[Hemera|Héméra]] is an INRIA Large Wingspan project, started in 2010, that aims at demonstrating ambitious up-scaling techniques for large scale distributed computing by carrying out several dimensioning experiments on the Grid’5000 infrastructure, at animating the scientific community around Grid’5000 and at enlarging the Grid’5000 community by helping newcomers to make use of Grid’5000.
 
 
== Initial Rationale==
 
'''The foundations of Grid'5000''' have emerged from a thorough analysis and numerous discussions about methodologies used for scientific research in the Grid domain. A report presents the [http://www-sop.inria.fr/aci/grid/public/Library/rapport-grid5000-V3.pdf rationale for Grid'5000].
 
 
In addition to theory, simulators and emulators, there is a strong need for '''large scale testbeds''' where real life experimental conditions hold. '''The size of Grid'5000''', in terms of number of sites and number of processors per site, was established according to the scale of the experiments and the number of researchers involved in the project.

Grid'5000

Grid'5000 is a large-scale and flexible testbed for experiment-driven research in all areas of computer science, with a focus on parallel and distributed computing including Cloud, HPC and Big Data and AI.

Key features:

  • provides access to a large amount of resources: 15000 cores, 800 compute-nodes grouped in homogeneous clusters, and featuring various technologies: PMEM, GPU, SSD, NVMe, 10G and 25G Ethernet, Infiniband, Omni-Path
  • highly reconfigurable and controllable: researchers can experiment with a fully customized software stack thanks to bare-metal deployment features, and can isolate their experiment at the networking layer
  • advanced monitoring and measurement features for traces collection of networking and power consumption, providing a deep understanding of experiments
  • designed to support Open Science and reproducible research, with full traceability of infrastructure and software changes on the testbed
  • a vibrant community of 500+ users supported by a solid technical team


Read more about our teams, our publications, and the usage policy of the testbed. Then get an account, and learn how to use the testbed with our Getting Started tutorial and the rest of our Users portal.

Grid'5000 is merging with FIT to build the SILECS Infrastructure for Large-scale Experimental Computer Science. Read an Introduction to SILECS (April 2018)

Latest news

Rss.svgIPv6 on Grid'5000

Grid'5000 now offers IPv6 connectivity to Internet from nodes !

To get a global IPv6 address on an interface, you can run dhclient -6 <interface> on your node.

Inside Grid'5000, new DNS entries have been added. For example :

  • dahu-1-ipv6.grenoble.grid5000.fr for the IPv6 address on the main interface of dahu-1
  • chetemi-2-eth1-ipv6.lille.grid5000.fr for the IPv6 address on the secondary interface of chetemi-2

Please note that IPv6 connectivity to Internet is now available but we are still working on some improvements and additional features such as :

  • IPv6 addresses for Kavlan. It is only for production network for the moment.
  • A tool to open access to your nodes from Internet. Incoming traffic from Internet to nodes is currently filtered.

Rss.svgRefactoring of the users' portal

We refactored the users' portal page of the Grid'5000 website, in order to give a better structure to the set of tutorials and guides. Some titles were slightly modified as well as some content, but you should be able to find all the information you were using so far easily.

For new comers, we hope it will be easier to find out efficiently how to use the testbed and its many features.

Also note that we removed the list of pages automatically provided by the wiki engine at the bottom, as we think this was not so relevant. All pages, even the outdated ones, can however still be found in the wiki.

-- Grid'5000 Team 16:00, July 9th 2020 (CEST)

Rss.svgGrid'5000 General Conditions of Use now available

To clarify the legal frame and the application of law surrounding Grid'5000 usage, we added a "General Conditions of Use" document to the Usage Policy.

From now on, usage of Grid'5000 must be in accordance with those two documents:

Rss.svgNew monitoring service for Grid'5000 available for beta testing

We are happy to announce a new service to provide environmental and performance metrics monitoring for Grid'5000 experiments.

The service uses the Kwollect framework and currently makes following metrics available:

- Energy consumption from dedicated “wattmetre” devices (currently available for some clusters in Lyon, Grenoble, Nancy) - Metrics collected from nodes’ Board Management Controller (out-of-band management hardware, such as Dell iDRAC), such as ambient temperature, hardware component temperature, energy consumption from PSU, fan speed, etc. - Traffic collected from network devices - Energy consumption from PDU, when available

It is also planned to add more metrics in the future.

The service documentation is available at:

https://www.grid5000.fr/w/Monitoring_Using_Kwollect

The service is currently in beta. Many things may change in the future. Feel free to give us your feedback at support-staff@lists.grid5000.fr
