FIFE workshop report

For the fourth year in a row, the FIFE Project hosted a two day workshop dedicated to improving the scientific computing for Intensity and Cosmic Frontier experiments at Fermilab. The first day focused on the new tools, resources and a roadmap (including a new logo) for the FIFE project in the future, and the second day consisted… More »

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.

The Continuous Integration (CI) project’s goal is to reduce the amount of human effort needed to verify each code release, and thus to reduce the frequency of wasted computing and human resources. The CI system is a set of tools, applications and machines that allows users to execute their validation tests with minimal effort. It is… More »

Every 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… More »

The Distributed Computing Access with Federated Identities (DCAFI) Project has been moving full steam ahead this summer. The short-term goal of the project is to move all Fermilab users from Fermi KCA, which is being planned to shut down at the end of September, to the new Certificate service provided by the CILogon Basic CA….
