Abstract: Monitoring and Accounting are vital requirements for any production grid, used to restrict usage to the allocated quotas and provide statistical overviews of the use of the grid. The UK’s Grid, the National Grid Service (NGS), has developed and implemented a User Accounting System (UAS) to automate the processes of user registration and account approval as well as provide automatic policing of accounts that go over quota. The User Accounting System queries the Resource Usage Service (RUS) to obtain usage details for each individual user, inputting the data into an Oracle database which will then send out warning emails to users who reach 90% of their allocated quota and locking accounts of users who reach 100%.
