>MDS 2.1 Features in the Globus Toolkit 2.0 Release
The Monitoring and Discovery Service (MDS) is the information services component of the Globus Toolkit. MDS 2.1 enhances the original implementation found in the 1.1.3 release of the Globus Toolkit with improvements in performance, security, reliability, installation, and ease of extension.
Note: Some MDS 2.1 functionality remains separate and distinct from that in MDS 2.2. Consequently documents reflecting that functionality are archived here. Otherwise, MDS 2.1 features and functions carried over into MDS 2.2 are described in the 2.2 document set.
