Since the last FIFE Newsletter there have been two Fifemon updates, v3.2 and v3.3. Notable new features include: SAM project monitoring, Grafana update, batch history and much more.https://cdcvs.fnal.gov/redmine/projects/lar-ci/wiki. Experiments/collaborations already on-boarded are: uBooNE, DUNE (35T), LArIAT, ArgoNeut (from the existing LAr-CI), NOvA and art. Other experiments have expressed interest and will soon be on-boarded. Read moreEvery physics experiment plans several years in advance. Accurately understanding the needs and defining the computational requirements is fundamental to the discovery and success of the experiment. This planning process needs to account for several unknowns, project the technological advancements with a reasonable level of approximation and incorporate them in the planning process. This process is even more challenging for experiments like DUNE and protoDUNE with their wide international collaborations that are still far from the data-taking phase. Amir Farbin along with his DUNE/protoDUNE colleagues are working on defining the computational requirements for the distributed data and workflow management for DUNE/protoDUNE collaboration.

FIFE provides collaborative scientific-data processing solutions for Frontier Experiments.
FIFE takes the collective experience from current and past experiments to provide options for designing offline computing for experiments. It is not a mandate from Scientific Computing Division about how an experiment should or should not design their offline computing. FIFE is modular so experiments can take what they need, and new tools from outside communities can be incorporated as they develop.
