Deploying perf SONAR for OSG/WLCG

This page provides details for site admins installing, upgrading or using perfSONAR in WLCG/OSG. The sections below are intended to allow users to find quickly the specific information they are interested in.

Our strong recommendation for anyone maintaining/using perfSONAR is that they join either/both of the following mailing lists:

Overview of perfSONAR in WLCG/OSG

OSG is working to support the scientific networking needs of it's constituents and collaborators. To do this, we are recommending all sites deploy perfSONAR so we can measure, monitor and diagnose the OSG (and WLCG) networks.

The following topical sections provide details about perfSONAR for WLCG/OSG

Changes for perfSONAR 4.0

The final release of perfSONAR 4.0 was put into the perfSONAR repository on April 17, 2017. All sites following our recommendation of having auto-updates enabled should have upgraded during within 1-2 days of that date. This release incorporates possibly the largest single change in perfSONAR’s 15-year history, and the developers spent considerable time making sure it was right.

Highlights include:

  • New scheduling software called pScheduler that provides increased visibility, extensibility and control in the measurement process.
  • CentOS 7 support
  • Debian perfsonar-toolkit bundle support
  • Updated graphs
  • Support for email alerting in MaDDash

For a more complete list of changes, see the full release notes at:

The WLCG Network Throughput Working Group is responsible for monitoring the WLCG/OSG instances and for defining and maintaining the mesh-configurations that we use to control perfSONAR testing. Please contact them if you have questions or suggestions related to perfSONAR testing amongst WLCG sites.
