NOVA: Networked Object-based Environment for Analysis

Pavel Nevski, Alexandre Vaniachine, Torre Wenaus

Speaker: Alexandre Vaniachine

  NOVA (Networked Object-based Environment for Analysis) is a project to develop components for distributed object oriented physics analysis which are easily adaptable to different experiments. A useful set of tools has been developed, tested and deployed in prototype and production settings. A job configuration manager uses a framework's scripting interface to provide web-based editing, submission and cataloguing of analysis jobs, both user-level and experiment-wide, centrally managed in a database. A client/server system distributed over compute nodes provides job submission and monitoring across facilities which may span several sites. Database tools applicable to eg. geometry and parameter storage and cataloguing applications are included. A web-based database browser navigates hierarchically structured dataObjects stored in a relational database. Clients may access database information through a CORBA-specified interface and directly from the legacy code (eg. Geant3) or OO code (Geant4). NOVA employs and anticipates growth of open source tools such as perl, MySQL and ORBACUS in HENP computing. NOVA components have been tested and/or deployed to date in STAR (RHIC) and ATLAS (LHC).
