The Locus Algorithm IV: Performance metrics of a grid computing system used to create catalogues of optimised pointings

11 Mar 2020 Creaner Oisín Walsh John Nolan Kevin Hickey Eugene

This paper discusses the requirements for and performance metrics of the the Grid Computing system used to implement the Locus Algorithm to identify optimum pointings for differential photometry of 61,662,376 stars and 23,779 quasars. Initial operational tests indicated a need for a software system to analyse the data and a High Performance Computing system to run that software in a scalable manner... (read more)
