Condor Project

Site Reference:

High throughput computing
- Develop

Specialized workload management system for computer intersive jobs.
Condor provides
- a job queuing system
- scheduling policy
- priority scheme
- resource monitoring
- resource management

Users submit their serial or parallel jobs to Condor, Condor places them into a queue, chooses when and where to run the jobs based upon a policy, carefully monitors their progress, and ultimately informs the user upon completion.

Similar to batch queueing system. Condor can be used to seamlessly combine all of an organization's computational power into one resource.

Condor provides high throughput
- Available resources more efficient. (That is resource usage more efficient)
- Expands the resources availabe to users.
