- batch scheduler
A job scheduler mechanism supported by GRAM. See http://www.cs.wisc.edu/condor/.
A command line program used to submit jobs to a WS GRAM service. See the commandline reference page at: http://www.globus.org/toolkit/docs/4.0/execution/wsgram/rn01re01.html
- Grid Resource allocation and Management (GRAM)
Web Services Grid Resource Allocation and Management (WS GRAM) component comprises a set of WSRF-compliant Web services to locate, submit, monitor, and cancel jobs on Grid computing resources. WS GRAM is not a job scheduler, but rather a set of services and clients for communicating with a range of different batch/cluster job schedulers using a common protocol. WS GRAM is meant to address a range of jobs where reliable operation, stateful monitoring, credential management, and file staging are important.
- job description
Term used to describe a WS GRAM job for GT4.
- job scheduler
A job scheduler mechanism supported by GRAM.
A program that typically operates at a higher level than a job scheduler (typically, above the GRAM level). It schedules and submits jobs to GRAM services.
- Managed Executable Job Service (MEJS)
- Managed Job Factory Service (MJFS)
- Managed Multi Job Service (MMJS)
- MMJS subjob
One of the executable jobs in a multijob rendezvous.
A job that is itself composed of several executable jobs; these are processed by the MMJS subjob.
See Also MMJS subjob.
- multijob rendezvous
A mechanism used by GRAM to synchronize between job processes in a multiprocess job and between.
- Portable Batch System (PBS)
A job scheduler mechanism supported by GRAM. http://www.openpbs.org
Term used to describe a job scheduler mechanism to which GRAM interfaces. It is a networked system for submitting, controlling, and monitoring the workload of batch jobs in one or more computers. The jobs or tasks are scheduled for execution at a time chosen by the subsystem according to an available policy and availability of resources. Popular job schedulers include Portable Batch System (PBS), Platform LSF, and IBM LoadLeveler.
- scheduler adapter
The interface used by GRAM to communicate/interact with a job scheduler mechanism. In GT4 this is both the perl submission scripts and the SEG program.
See Also scheduler.
- Scheduler Event Generator (SEG)
- superuser do (sudo)
Allows a system administrator to give certain users (or groups of users) the ability to run some (or all) commands as root or another user while logging the commands and arguments.
