About the Project

The Storage Resource Broker (SRB) is a data grid management system developed by the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC). The software is able to unite and manage storage media of many kinds on heterogeneous systems across the network and, as a result, to make the storage infrastructure appear transparent for the end user.

This project documentation presents the development of multiple independent monitoring tools, which operate within a network to support and improve the administration and debug process of the SRB system. Emphasis is put on the design and implementation of a software package used to successfully analyse, transfer and display the contents of the SRB systems logfiles. The created software is not restricted to SRB log files. Any system with text log files can be monitored.

This project was performed as a Master Thesis Project at the University of Reading (UK) for the Council for the Central Laboratory of the Research Councils (CCLRC), which supported this thesis.
