Abstract: Writing about the virtues of Grid computing for the UK e-Science community would be a superfluous exercise. What cannot be underestimated however is the role the underlying network will play in the Grid’s effectiveness. Without network performance data, Grid middleware and applications cannot optimise their performance by adapting to changing network conditions, networks cannot be debugged for efficiency, and the Grid cannot support the measurable SLAs required for the “utility computing” model. To address some of these issues, a UK e-Science Grid network performance monitoring project began in June 2002. Progress has been presented at each All Hands Meeting, and this continues for 2004 with an update focusing on the international Grid network monitoring work the UK has contributed to in the last year, via the GGF. Namely, development of XML schemas for communicating with network monitoring systems, and beginning proposals for delivering network functions as Grid services, with the end goal of transforming the network into a manageable Grid resource.
