Files offer distributed applications a convenient asynchronous communication channel with seemingly infinite buffering capacity. As a result, more and more distributed applications employ files to interface producers and consumers of information. Logging and accounting information as well as temporary results of multi stage parallel computations are routinely written into files with the expectation that “someone” will eventually consume the information and free the space. We will review the challenges the OSG is facing in supporting this growing trend and our plans to address them.
