Abstract

Grid computing represents the fundamental computing shift from a localized resource computing model to a fully-distributed virtual organization with shared resources. Accounting is one of the main obstacles to widespread adoption of the Grid. Accounting has until recently, been a sparsely-addressed problem, particularly in practice. In this paper, we design and implement the accounting information gathering system. Implemented system is based on OGSA, following GSAX framework of RUS-WG in GGF. To provide end-to-end user identity of accounting information, we use a Grid access control system, called PGAM. And the schema of accounting information is following Usage Record Fields of UR-WG in GGF. Also, the accounting information monitoring tool for system management in the Grid environment is implemented.
