Grid infrastructure

3 grid types are currently handled by MOTEUR. They are:

  • LCG: this is the EGEE production infrastructure. It should be used for large scale intensive executions.
  • GRID'5000: this corresponds to a Grid'5000 cluster. MOTEUR do not deploy any specific middleware on it: it uses the OAR batch scheduler to submit and monitor jobs on it.
  • LOCAL: in this case, jobs are executed on the local host machine, through system calls. It should be used for testing and prototyping the application on light data sets.

The grid type is selected by the “GRID” parameter of the conf/grid.conf file.
