:: Session 13: Day 5: Time 11:00
Condor as an example of High Throughput Computing
and Alain Roy
In this session, Condor will be described with enough depth to allow students
to use Condor as a high throughput batch system. Design principles such as
matchmaking and ClassAds for information exchange will be described, as well
using Condor to run a variety of types of jobs. In addition to running single
jobs, higher-level mechanisms for running large sets of jobs will be described.
- An Introduction To Condor [ppt
Prof Dr Miron Livny, BSc, MSc
Miron Livny received a BSc degree in Physics and Mathematics in
1975 from the Hebrew University and MSc and PhD degrees in Computer
Science from the Weizmann Institute of Science in 1978 and 1984,
respectively. Since 1983 he has been on the Computer Sciences
Department faculty at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where
he is currently a Professor of Computer Sciences and is leading
the Condor project.
Dr. Livny's research focuses on distributed processing and data
management systems and data visualization environments. His recent
work includes the Condor high throughput computing system, the
DEVise data visualization and exploration environment and the
BMRB repository for data from NMR spectroscopy.
Dr Alain Roy
Alain Roy is currently an Associate Researcher with the Condor Project at the
University of Wisconsin-Madison in the US. He received his Ph.D. in Computer
Science from the University of Chicago in 2001, where he did research about
advanced reservations for Quality of Service across heterogeneous resources.
Today Alain concentrates on creating and supporting the VDT, a grid software
distribution used by a variety of grid projects including Open Science Grid,
and EGEE. He is also a co-principal investigator on the NMI nanoHUB project
which is deploying a grid infrastructure for running nanotechnology jobs.
