gLite File Transfer Monitor

The File Transfer Monitor node queries the FTS database currently performs 3 things.

1) A web page summary is created at hourly, daily and weekly intervals. This is performed by the glite-transfer-monitor-report package.

2) Two summary files are created of recent transfers from
the database. This is performed by the glite-transfer-monitor-gridview package.

3) These summary files are published into gridview via
the gridview packages. This is done by the gridview-wsclient-fts package.

Other packages are gridview-wsclient-common which are required by gridview-wsclient-fts and glite-transfer-schema which contains the schema additions for the FTS database.

The whole lot is configured by glite-yaim-fts and the ftm2 target.

Oracle instantclient has to be installed on the node.
