Grid Resource Allocation & Management Protocol
Grid service of the Globus Toolkit to manage jobs on the cluster via a HTTP based protocol
|GriCli||Grisu command line client||command line client, which allows grid-based job submission from a command line or a shell script|
|Grisu||The Grisu suite allows NeSI members to submit compute jobs in a standard form to the various NeSI Computational Grid resources ( Older BestGRID documentation Grisu . Github https://github.com/grisu )|
GridFTP is a high-performance, secure, reliable data transfer protocol optimized for high-bandwidth wide-area networks.
|GRIX||The Grix client tool is used to request and manage your grid certificate/identity.|
Grid Security Infrastructure
Grid User Management System
GUMS is a "grid identity mapping service". It replaces the Globus grid-mapfile and it will map users (X509 certificate distinguished names, plus perhaps a VOMS role) to a user. It can obtains lists of users from an LDAP server, a VOMS server, or from manual configuration. ... a callout from Globus must be used. In the VDT, we provide PRIMA for this purpose.
