Abstract: Grid environments present a virtual black box to scientists running interactive legacy applications, with the Grid infrastructure effectively hiding the running application on a resource over which the scientist generally has limited control. In this paper we present gridMonSteer, a simple, non-intrusive architecture that allows scientists to receive intermediate results and interact with legacy applications running in a Grid environment. This architecture is Grid middleware independent and can be employed to monitor applications submitted via any Grid resource manager (e.g. GRAM, GRMS or Condor/G) or running within a Grid service framework. We present a case study describing how gridMonSteer enables legacy applications to act as active components in Grid workflows, dynamically driving and steering the workflow execution.
