Re: [Condor-users] Matlab Distributed Computing Engine and Condor


Our general suggestion is to run a few jobs and make sure you
have your application doing what you want and then to use
the Matlab compiler to set yourself up with a license free
application which can run anywhere. We then let Condor handle
the submission and handling of the data out to our cluster.

We usually create a DAG and submit the Dag with Dagman to ensure
that we can restart it if some had issues and failed without redoing
all of them.

We keep a copy of the Matlab compiler runtime on a shared file system
that all the nodes can see and simply move the data needed for each job.

We have not had a need to look at their tool. I fired up a job on Wednesday
for a department here and we had run 2,400 jobs by about the same time
the next day.

Hope this helps some.

I am evaluating whether I can use Condor as a job manager for the MATLAB Distributed Computing Engine from The Mathworks. I have not used Condor before.
Has anyone attempted to do this before?

Any guidance or lessons learned from the user community would be appreciated.
