Re: [HTCondor-users] HTCondor & LS-Opt

Dear Miha,

Thank you for your response. I had already taken a look at Bosco, but there is no mention of LS-Opt and it seems that it does not work for us for two reasons:
* it is not written for Windows, and the submit computers that I was wanting to use are Win7 (phasing out WinXP).
* it requires submissions to be made using HTCondor syntax,which means that I have to write the wrappers anyway for LS-Opt to submit the tasks, and it doesn't seem to add anything at I need - i.e. it adds the ability to submit remotely and to describe dependencies, but our network is made up of desktop computers, and dependencies are handled by LS-Opt.

Am I missing anything? 

If Bosco worked on Win7, then it looks as though it could be useful for submitting LS-Dyna jobs to a Linux cluster that we have, though. Any idea if a Windows Bosco is in the pipeline?

Best regards,

I suggest you have a look at Bosco, http://bosco.opensciencegrid.org/ Download and install is very easy and you connect in a jiffy to an external cluster.

Ask any questions on bosco-discuss alias or contact me to direct you to an engineer. You will be  pleasantly surprised, I hope.
