Batch system server

From Gridkaschool


The batch system server is the central component of the local resource management system. In general the server is responsible for the job management and scheduling. This includes in particular

  • management of the available job queues
  • routing of jobs through the various queues
  • assigning jobs to worker nodes
  • monitoring the job status

Users submit their jobs usually via a batch system client. In our scenario the client software is installed on the CREAM Compute Element.

gLite supports with PBS, SGE and LSF three different batch system softwares. If no batch system is available at a site (e. g. when you start from scratch), gLite provides you also the packages the Torque batch system. In a few minutes you will use this packages to establish a small batch system consisting of one server and one worker node at your site.
