Re: [Condor-users] Mac Users of Condor Anybody out there?

Purdue's BoilerGrid has a couple of OS X slots floating around, but just a couple.

FWIW, we find that users won't spend the time porting their code to lightly-represented platforms. Of course, in an environment like Ian's, with a central software stack, it may make more sense.

We use OS X, but so far not for Condor pools, although that may change. I think Clemson may also have machines publishing OS X, but they may only be available internally.

We'd be happy to work with you to share experiences of the process, and if you put them into an OSG accessible pool, we'd happily use them. Our full software stack is already compiled for PPC and Intel Mac.

Does anybody use OS X for Condor Pools? I was thinking of putting our
Spare dual core and quad core Mac pros (PowerPC and Intel) into a
Cluster and either joining them to OSG or Flocking them with somebody
but wondering if anybody would care or use them?
