Condor Boot Camp at Purdue - October 25, 2007

I'm interested in attending

October 10, 2007

The Rosen Center for Advanced Computing (RCAC) at Purdue is developing a campus-wide and state-wide consortium tentatively called BoilerGrid. BoilerGrid will offer to participants the use of idle cycles from a large number of computers for the purpose of conducting scientific research.

Condor from U. of Wisconsin is a specialized workload management system for compute-intensive jobs. Condor provides job-queuing, scheduling policies, priorities, resource monitoring, and resource management. Condor is able to operate on idle cycles on regular computer hardware. The student lab that sits idle in your department for 12 hours a day can now become a compute resource useful to researchers around the state with "high-throughput" applications.

By harnessing these idle cycles on HPC clusters and student labs, RCAC is able to deliver millions of hours of computing time to researchers from Purdue, the state of Indiana, and the nation.
