Subject: [Condor-users] Dynamic Pool Configuration
I am a rookie in this area and have been doing some preliminary
reading. So, I am not sure if this question has been asked before or if
its too naive. Here is my question --
Imagine I have a condor pool of 50 machines which are monitored/managed
by some "parent node". Based upon the status of these 50 nodes, the
jobs are submitted to them.
Now, think of a new node (51st machine) that has been provisioned by
some resource allocator. This node was not a part of the original
condor pool. In other words, originally the "parent node" is not aware
of this new node. My question is -- how do I make the parent node aware
of the fact that a new machine has arrived (and it needs to be included
in the pool and can be used for job execution, monitoring etc.) ?
Please let me know if you have any ideas to do this with Condor or any
other scheduling system available (including Sun Grid, PBS, LSF etc..).
