Blue Waters provides a series of free webinars throughout the year. The Scientific Workflows webinar track provides an overview of common scientific workflows and tools that enable them. In the first presentation of series of webinars, Scott Callaghan presented an overview of scientific workflows, where he discussed what the community … Read More
The scientific computational work as portable workflows. Automatically locates the necessary input data and computational resources, and manages storage space for executing data-intensive workflows on storage-constrained resources. Learn more.
From failures at runtime (fault-tolerance). Task are automatically retried in the presence of errors. A rescue workflow containing a description of only the work that remains is provided. Provenance is also captured (data, software, parameters, etc.). Learn more.
Pegasus powers LIGO gravitational wave detection analysis
The Pegasus team is very happy to hear about LIGO’s incredible discovery: the first detection of gravitational waves from colliding black holes. We congratulate the entire LIGO Scientific Collaboration and the Virgo Collaboration on this incredible achievement.
The Pegasus team is very pleased to have contributed to LIGO’s software infrastructure. One of the main analysis pipelines used by LIGO to detect the gravitational wave was executed using Pegasus Workflow Management System (WMS). The PyCBC analysis pipeline analyzed data from the two LIGO detectors. Initially the analysis was managed by Pegasus WMS on the LIGO Data Grid. LIGO extended their computations to the nation-wide cyber-infrastructures, Open Science Grid and XSEDE. Pegasus aided this expansion by managing cross-site data transfers and computations in a reliable, scalable, and efficient manner. Pegasus enables LIGO researchers to easily monitor and analyze their workflows via a web based dashboard, and a suite of command line tools.
Diamonds that Deliver!
The Pegasus team is very happy to hear about the cutting-edge research and development that can help solve some of the challenges associated with drug delivery discovery: “The motions of a tRNA (or transfer RNA) model system can be enhanced when coupled with nanodiamonds, or diamond nanoparticles approximately 5 to 10 nanometers in size”. The discovery involved ORNL's Spallation Neutron Source, which provides the most intense pulsed neutron beams in the world for scientific research and industrial development, and ORNL's Titan supercomputer, the nation's most powerful for open science. By comparing the SNS neutron scattering data with the data from the team's molecular dynamics simulations on Titan, the researchers have confirmed that nanodiamonds enhance the dynamics of tRNA when in the presence of water; This analysis was performed with the Pegasus WMS.Read more...

Following bugs were fixed [PM-1148] – kickstart should print a more helpful error message if the executable is missing [PM-1160] – Dashboard is not recording … Read More
The three-year project, Scientific Workflow Integrity with Pegasus, is funded by a $1 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) as part of its Cybersecurity Innovation for Cyberinfrastructure (CICI) program. Von Welch, director of IU’s Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research (CACR), is the project’s principal investigator. The Pegasus Workflow … Read More
TACC (Texas Advanced Computing Center) has published a science highlight of the SoyKB project. Pegasus is used to orchestrate the computations running on TACC Wrangler and automatically retrieving and storing data in the CyVerse data store. Also highlighted is how the XSEDE ECSS (Extended Collaborative Support Service) can be used … Read More
Pegasus (est. 2001) has been widely adopted by the computational research community, and its performance and usage data have already demonstrated its ability to empower the scientists to seamlessly run their simulation or data analyses in distributed systems. In this project, we aim to provide empirical data to demonstrate on … Read More
Early this month, the Pegasus team was very excited to hear about LIGO’s incredible discovery: the first detection of gravitational waves from colliding black holes. Since then, LIGO and Pegasus have been featured in several media channels. Below, we summarize some of these publications. Additionally, we provide the link to … Read More
