Managing Computational Gateway Resources with XDMoD
2017-10-25T01:55:55Z (GMT) by
The U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) has invested heavily in research computing, funding XSEDE to integrate supercomputers with science gateways and datasets for researchers in the U.S. and around the world. It is important to understand how these tools contribute to knowledge, plan wisely for future resource investments, and enable end users to make better use of these resources. Enter XDMoD (XD Metrics on Demand), a comprehensive tool that collects and presents detailed data about resource usage, for program managers, developers, support staff, and end users alike. As XSEDE adds non-traditional resources and diversifies its computational resources, the considerable capabilities offered by XDMoD must keep pace. In this short paper, we introduce XDMoD's current capabilities, describe the state of its support for gateway resources, and outline our plans to further enhance these offerings.
