The main difference between the scheduler universe and the local universe is
that local universe jobs are run under the control of a Starter, whereas a
scheduler universe job is just forked off by the Schedd.
The local universe is still being developed, and it is not fully supported
yet. For instance, local universe jobs in the next development release will
be able to use Periodic and OnExit expressions just like the vanilla/standard
Also of note is that as of version 6.7.14, the Schedd now evaluates a
scheduler/local universe job's Requirements attribute in its ClassAd.
However, the Schedd is not pulling information from its local Startd's
machine ad to compare against the local universe job, which may cause a local
universe job not to match. This is not a problem for scheduler universe since
they do not use a Starter. We hope to add this in before 6.8.
