DIET Deployment

DeploymentAn important factor that influences the efficiency of DIET is the mapping of its components on available resources. We call mapping of the components on available resources « deployment ». GoDIET is designed to automate the deployment of DIET platforms and associated services for diverse grid environments. Key goals of GoDIET included portability, the ability to integrate GoDIET in a graphically-based user tool for DIET management, and the ability to communicate in CORBA with LogService. GoDIET automatically generates configuration files for each DIET element while taking into account user configuration preferences and the hierarchy defined by the user, launches complimentary services (such as a name service and logging services), provides an ordered launch of components based on dependencies defined by the hierarchy, and provides remote cleanup of launched processes when the deployed platform is to be destroyed.
