Abstract

Providing Grid users with a widely accessible, homogeneous and easy-to-use graphical interface is the foremost aim of Grid-portal development. These portals if designed and implemented in a proper and user-friendly way, might fuel the dissemination of Grid-technologies, hereby promoting the shift of Grid-usage from research into real life, industrial application, which is to happen in the foreseeable future, hopefully. This paper highlights the key issues in Grid-portal development and introduces P-GRADE Portal being developed at MTA SZTAKI. The portal allows users to manage the whole life-cycle of executing a parallel application in the Grid: editing workflows, submitting jobs relying on Grid-credentials and analyzing the monitored trace-data by means of visualization.
