Re: [HTCondor-users] Docker image with HT Condor

I am trying to build the Ubuntu-based one. Actually, I have already faced into an insteresting issue:

start_procd: error received from procd: error: Procd's ppid can't be 1!
ERROR "unable to spawn the ProcD" at line 120 in file /slots/01/dir_21554/userdir/.tmpipYQd5/condor-8.8.2/src/condor_utils/proc_family_proxy.cpp

Any ideas? ;-)

All the best,
Alexander A. Prokhorov

Dear Colleagues,

Do you know if there are nicely cooked Docker images with HT Condor? I would like to prepare 3 images for my deployments:
  • Submit host.
  • Main.
  • Worker.

The HTCondor team doesn't officially provide Docker images today.  Especially for the worker nodes, but to a lesser extent the submit node, you probably care a lot about the contents of the underlying image:  Do you want a rhel-style base image?  Or a Debian one?  Or maybe something else?  On top of that, many users expect a fair amount of custom software pre-installed in their images, maybe a python numpy stack, or R or other large software systems.

Perhaps the best thing we could do is to provide a nice recipe for a Dockerfile snippet that could be mixed onto another image.
