Linux Training : j. Condor


A service which is used for distributed computing. It is capable of running multiple and parallel jobs on multiple machines during off hours, as well as on dedicated machines. Our current setup is only dedicated machines, with the hopes of expanding to other non-dedicated machines in the near future. Jobs are controlled and submitted from tesla, and run on a cluster of i7 machines set up for GPGPU (General Purpose computing on Graphics Processing Units) programming. The only way to monitor these machines is to log in to the master node, and access is currently restricted. Specific information on condor configuration will be added later.
