65215 High energy physics data sets are currently very large and will continue to grow. In order to deliver these large data sets to the end user, event selection (or skimming, a time consuming and labor intensive stage of any experimental effort) must be performed on a remote site. This project will address this need and develop a Web-invocable tool, implemented as a client/server system, for remote skimming. The client will be written as a Java applet and downloaded from Internet. It will have entries for data selection criteria and methods for monitoring submitted jobs. The C++ server will maintain all connections and invoke the skims. The server-client communication will be performed through CORBA. The tool will be collaborative, supporting multiple clients and having repository for generated skims and skimmed data. Phase I will build a working prototype, in which the prototype client will be capable of selecting from a set of skims located on the server, setting skim configurations, and generating new skims. The prototype server will invoke skims and deliver the derived data to the client. Commercial Applications And Other Benefits as described by awardee: The proposed application could be used in various data intensive experiments such as high energy experiments (CMS, ATLAS etc.), space science observations, and climate modeling. Similarly, it could be used for selection of data in e-commerce and e-banking applications.
