Execution management tools are concerned with the initiation, monitoring, management, scheduling, and/or coordination of remote computations (or jobs). GT4 supports the Grid Resource Allocation and Management (GRAM) interface as a basic mechanism for these purposes. Other tools are available as described in the table below.
GT4 includes two different GRAM implementations:
C, Java, and Python client APIs, as well as command line tools, are provided for both versions.
More information is provided in Key Concepts.
