Sites batch system status

This page has been setup to collect information from GridPP sites regarding their batch systems in February 2014. The information will help with wider considerations and strategy. The table seeks the following:

  1. Current product (local/shared) - what is the current batch system at the site. Is it locally managed or shared with other groups?
  2. Concerns - has your site experienced any problems with the batch system in operation?
  3. Interest/Investigating/Testing - Does your site already have plans to change and if so to what. If not are you actively investigating or testing any alternatives?
  4. CE type(s) - What CE type (gLite, ARC...) do you currently run and do you plan to change this, perhaps in conjunction with a batch system move?
  5. glExec/pilot support for all VOs - do you have glExec and pilot pool accounts for all VOs, as opposed to just the LHC VOs? Used for the move to a Dirac WMS.
  6. Multicore status for ATLAS and CMS
    1. ATLAS multicore jobs history for UK sites
  7. Machine/Job Features (MJF) enabled: - = not started; Fail = failing SAM tests; Warn = warnings from SAM tests; Pass = passing SAM tests
  8. Notes - Any other information you wish to share on this topic.

See Cloud & VM status for more status of Vac/Cloud deployment
