* '''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.

* '''Grid'5000''' is a research effort developing a '''large scale nation wide infrastructure for large scale parallel and distributed computing research'''.
 
 
* '''19 [[Grid5000:Laboratories|laboratories]]''' are involved in France with the objective of providing the community a testbed allowing experiments in all the software layers between the network protocols up to the applications.
 
 
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
 
 
 
 
This high collaborative research effort is funded by INRIA, CNRS, the Universities of all sites and some regional councils.
 
 
 
 
== ALADDIN-G5K : ensuring the development of '''Grid'5000''' ==

==[[Hemera|HEMERA: Demonstrating ambitious up-scaling techniques on '''Grid'5000''']] ==
 
[[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.

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:

-- Grid'5000 Team 17:00, June 30th 2020 (CEST)

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
