DataTag Work package 3

DataTAG is a joint research project sponsored by the European Commission. For more information, see the full Project Proposal, the work package overview or the DataTAG website.

The DataTAG proposal consists of six work packages (WP). This site lists the work of Work Package 3.

Work package 3

The work in WP 3, Bulk data transfer validations and application performance monitoring, will develop new and enhanced monitoring tools to validate the intercontinental infrastructure and provide information to understand user perceived performance in real-world tests.

Description and time schedule

The work in WP 3 consists of three tasks (Task 3.1 through 3.3). For more information, see
full description of Work package 3, including descriptions for each task.
Time schedule of Work package 3

Task 3.1:
