Re: [condor-users] synchronously starting multiple jobs in Condor

The only way ( that I am aware of ) to force jobs to start at once on
all machines is MPI universe. For our progs, which have to be started
this way, we wrap them in MPI_Init and MPI_Finalize and run as if it was
MPI application in MPI universe. This functionality of start barrier is
implemented in the dedicated schedd, running for MPI universe only, and
I don think that you have any way to hack it to do the same for non-mpi
I remember that there were talks about generic parallel universe. Where
is it now, and any future plans on this - developers - answer our call!
I think that this 'start barrier' feature is rather necessary thing.
