Re: [Condor-users] grid universe == globus universe?

Ops... out of topic!
Just wonder anybody knows how to measure scalability?
Say my resource broker in condor-G is scalable- how do we claim then

For now, using "universe=globus" in your submit file is equivalent to 
doing universe = grid with the gt2 grid_type.   But this backwards 
compatibility 'feature' may certainly go away, as doing 
"universe=globus" has been deprecated.  Best to move over to using the 
universe=grid syntax as soon as convenient.
