Real Time Monitor (RTM) is a visualization of activity of the grid computing infrastructure. The application displays information from various grid projects including the European Grid Infrastructure (EGI) and the worldwide LHC Computing Grid (wLCG).
The Real time monitor overlays grid activity onto a 3D globe. Navigation around the globe is simple with the mouse's scroll wheel zooming in and out and left click + drag moving the globe. There is also a summary of the number of jobs running and scheduled across the globe on the screen. Each site that is connected to the Grid at the time is represented by circle at the location of the resources. If the site is not doing any grid work it is simply a yellow dot. However if the site is actively processing work then the site is a pulsing circle of magenta and green. This circle is a pie chart representing the proportion of jobs running at the site (the green segment) and jobs queued to be run (magenta segment). The maximum size of the circle is related to the total number of jobs at a site (both running and queued). The more jobs the bigger the circle gets. The size is a logarithmic scale to the base ten so the sites only grow as it reaches a new order of magnitude.
