Description:Result Monitoring and Online Steering Tool
Abstract:RMOST is a computational steering tool which allows to interactively monitor and control the progress of running Athena jobs in the Grid. Athena is the application software of the high energy physics experiment ATLAS. For data visualization, RMOST provides a plug-in for ROOT which enables online access to the job’s intermediate results, stored in a ROOT file. In addition, RMOST supports the visualization of other application data, the monitoring of the job’s progress, and the steering of the job execution. In particular, the<BR/>job options can be modified without having to re-submit the job. Furthermore, custom steering capabilities can be integrated in own components. The basic<BR/>functionality does not require any modification of the application’s source code, but only adding a few lines to the job options file.
