Re: [Condor-users] Heterogeneous Meta scheduling


Condor-G can be used as a scheduler by leveraging its matchmaking capabilities. Jobs can be kept in the Condor-G queue while waiting for the "right match". You can use Condor tools like HawkEye to collect information from the potential sites and send them to the matchmaker. Several sites/projects use Condor-G in this capacity. Recently, with the help of our European collaborators, we added to Condor "direct" interfaces to PBS and LSF. With our recent work on supporting the delegation of Condor jobs from one SchedD to another SchedD (Condor-C), one can construct heterogeneous schedulers with several layers of matchmaking.

Hello Ashiq Anjum

I am sorry to correct you and I might be wrong, but as far as I know,
Condor-G is not a meta-scheduler.
Condor-G is a submission engine. It is used to submit jobs to any local
scheduler (Condor, PBS, etc..) according to Globus API. Condor-G
actually uses GRAM and extends it with more capabilities (such as
multiple job submission, DAGMAN and more ) to do the actual submission
and job control work.

Meta scheduler are: either CSF, Resource Broker used in LCG or others.
