Real data flowing through PIC
ATLAS has provided a nice monitoring page where we can follow the progress of data distribution in these so exciting moments of first circulating beam in the LHC. This is not collisions yet, but real data indeed. After so many years of simulations, we are happy to see the first Megabytes of real stuff. In the picture, I have just captured the current status of the datasets distribution to Tier-1s and from there to the associated Tier-2s. The overall picture looks pretty green, which is good news. PIC received the subscribed data with no problems and promptly redistributed it to the Tier-2s. It looks the data movement went mostly smooth. Let's keep an eye on this. We will see the rates growing in the next days.
