gLite LCG File Catalog (LFC) for MySQL
The LFC (LCG File Catalog) is a data catalog
containing logical to physical file mappings. Depending on the VO
deployment model, the LFC is installed centrally or locally.
The LFC is a secure catalog, supporting GSI security and VOMS.
In the LFC, a given file is represented by a Grid Unique IDentifier
(GUID). A given file replicated at different sites is then considered
as the same file, thanks to this GUID, but (can) appear as a unique
logical entry in the LFC catalog.
This version uses MySQL as a database backend.
For all the documentation of this service, please refer to the DPM/LFC documentation page.
