Session Details

PerfSONAR and Faster File Transfers Featuring Small Nodes


ObjectivesThis 1-day workshop will cover perfSONAR, software and hardware tuning for faster file transfers, and small node perfSONAR based test sets. It will include a hands-on component with the small nodes and possible cloud-based training simulations. We will also discuss the various types of Data movement and storage nodes. Draft Agenda for the 1-day workshop 1. perfSONAR Intro and Motivation 2. File Transfers 3. What types of Data movement/storage nodes exist. 1. Data Transfer Node 2. Data Storage Node 3. Data Access Node. 4. Data Test Node 4. perfSONAR use cases 1. using perfSONAR for file transfer testing 5. Small Nodes for perfSONAR and Data movement 6. Hands-on troubleshooting with perfSONAR
