ICT Challenges of High-HLC

An NO hint about lhc@home or volunteers :-(

This particular document is focused on the computing requirements to handle the orders of magnitude increases of data rates with the future LHC upgrade to HL-LHC in the 2020s. (Please do not worry, we will not send petabytes of data down to volunteer computers, we focus our volunteer computing efforts on simulation jobs with relatively small data sets.)

Contributions from volunteers on LHC@home for simulations of future accelerator and detector upgrades are indeed very much appreciated and acknowledged by scientists and mentioned in articles and papers. E.g. this paper on simulations for the HL-LHC or this one for ATLAS.

I have simulated 686874 particle collisions on my Windows 10 PC and Atlas. SixTrack tasks run both on the Windows PC and on a SuSE Linux box, when available. All other LHC tasks fail, for unknown reasons. The Windows PC has a 22 GB RAM, the Linux box only 8 GB. On that, I only run single core Atlas tasks, 2 on the Windows PC.

Thank you for links!
