OGF42 DRMAA2 Code Camp: Using the new API for Job Workflow, Job Management, and Cluster Monitoring in Univa Grid Engine

on Mon, 09/22/2014 - 08:16

The Open Grid Forum 42 was happening two weeks ago at the Imperial College of London. Since we are strong supporter of open standards around HPC clusters we participated with a DRMAA2 Code Camp as part of the DRMAA2 specification sessions. The goal from this session was to provide interested developers a Univa Grid Engine 8.2 demo cluster on their laptop in order to have an easy way of gaining experience with the new DRMAA2 C API.

If you want to learn about how to setup an Univa Grid Engine cluster (ready for DRMAA2 programming) in a few easy steps, then download the presentation here.

 

8.2.0 and the Art of Version Numbering

on Fri, 09/05/2014 - 07:28

Univa Grid Engine was released in its newest version 8.2.0 delivering a whole set of exiting enhancements. Two prominent developments, the Microsoft Windows native native support and the Qmaster Read-Only Thread Pool, mark both, major feature improvements and a fundamental evolution of the code base. This drove our decision to award this release with the 8.2 release number. In fact, a 9.0 would have been justified as well but upgrading from an 8.1.x release to 8.2 is still a well contained process and we have further developments on the roadmap which will deserve the 9.0 at least as much.
