PBStoHTCondor system for campus grids.

Brennan, J. and Holmes, V. and Bonner, S. and Kureshi, I. (2015) 'PBStoHTCondor system for campus grids.', in Proceedings of 2015 Science and Information Conference (SAI) : July 28-30, 2015, London, United Kingdom. London: IEEE, pp. 55-61.


The campus grid architectures currently available are considered to be overly complex. We have focused on High Throughput Condor HTCondor as one of the most popular middlewares among UK universities, and are proposing a new system for unifying campus grid resources. This new system PBStoCondor is capable of interfacing with Linux based system within the campus grids, and automatically determining the best resource for a given job. The system does not require additional efforts from users and administrators of the campus grid resources. We have compared the real usage data and PBStoCondor system simulation data. The results show a close match. The proposed system will enable better utilization of campus grid resources, and will not require modification in users' workflows.
