Fabric for Frontier Experiments (FIFE)

FabrIc for Frontier Experiments (FIFE) provides collaborative scientific data processing solutions for Intensity Frontier experiments.

FIFE takes the collective experience from current and past experiments to provide options for designing offline computing for experiments. FIFE is modular, so experiments can take what they need and new tools from outside communities can be incorporated as they develop. FIFE is based on common toolsets wherever possible to increase flexibility, provide for efficient evolution, and reduce the maintenance load.

FIFE includes architecture, design, services and support for:

  • Grid submission to dedicated and opportunistic resources and user-friendly monitoring of submitted jobs.
  • Data management and handling with co-scheduling of data and job services and integrated into the art analysis framework.
  • Database and dataset applications such as beam monitoring, conditions and hardware.
  • Collaborative tools such as an electronic control room logbook and shift scheduler.
  • Collaborations with experiments to build integrated solutions.
