gLite 3.2

gLite Logging and Bookkeeping Service (LB)


The Logging and Bookkeeping service (LB) tracks jobs in terms of events (important points of job life, e.g. submission, finding a matching CE, starting execution etc.) gathered from various WMS components as well as CEs (all those have to be instrumented with LB calls).

The events are passed to a physically close component of the LB infrastructure (locallogger) in order to avoid network problems. This component stores them in a local disk file and takes over the responsibility to deliver them further.

For further details on the LB, please check the LB project page.

For a list of links with LB related documentation, please check the LB documentation page.

For a technical summary of the LB service, please check the LB service reference card.
