A Quick Start Howto for GlueX Members

Richard Jones, University of Connecticut

The GlueX collaboration is registered as a Virtual Organization (VO) within the Open Science Grid (OSG). One requirement for all VO's is that someone within the collaboration be the primary point of support for the members of the VO, and provide both documentation and assistance in problem-solving for users of grid resources and tools within the collaboration. I (Richard Jones) am that point of support for GlueX members, for the period leading up to the start of physics data taking. In return for the support I provide to Gluex VO users, I have direct access to experts within the OSG central support to help with issues that are beyond my control or expertise. This document is only the starting point for my support to GlueX members. Feedback on the accuracy, organization, and general usefulness of this page will be appreciated.

Who should read this document?

  1. What are the primary uses of the grid for GlueX users?
    Production of large-scale physics simulation data sets, and provision of easy access to these data for carrying out physics analyses.
