Abstract
The Nordic Grid facility (NorduGrid [1]) came into

operation during summer 2002 when the Scandinavian

ATLAS HEP group started to use the Grid for the

ATLAS Data Challenges (DC) and was thus the first Grid

ever contributing to an ATLAS production. Since then,

the Grid facility has been in continuous 24/7 operation.

NorduGrid is being used by a growing set of active

users from various scientific areas including physics,

chemistry, biology and informatics. It has given major

contributions to the ATLAS Data Challenge 1 [2] and the

ongoing Data Challenge 2.

the Grid facility has been in continuous 24/7 operation.

NorduGrid is being used by a growing set of active

users from various scientific areas including physics,

chemistry, biology and informatics. It has given major

contributions to the ATLAS Data Challenge 1 [2] and the

ongoing Data Challenge 2.

· The increasing number of resources has made

NorduGrid one of the largest production Grids in

the world, continuously running on more than 30

sites more than 3000 CPUs.

· The resources range from small test clusters at

academic institutions to large farms at several

supercomputer centers and the NorduGrid

software runs on clusters with very different Linux

distributions.

This presentation gives a short overview of the design

and implementation of the NorduGrid middleware,

logging and monitoring facilities. It will be followed by a

description of a typical job on NorduGrid and the

information about its parameters which are monitored online

and persistified in the logging service. (Less)
