A Step Towards a Computing Grid for the LHC Experiments: ATLAS Data Challenge 1
Summary, in English
It should be noted that it was not an option to “run the complete production at CERN” even if we had wanted to; the resources were not available at CERN to carry out the production on a reasonable time-scale. The great challenge of organising and then carrying out this large-scale production at a significant number of sites around the world had therefore to be faced. However, the benefits of this are manifold: apart from realising the required computing resources, this exercise created worldwide momentum for ATLAS computing as a whole.
This report describes in detail the main steps carried out in DC1 and what has been learned from them as a step towards a computing Grid for the LHC experiments.
