Scalable grid scheduler
The MRG Grid scheduler is based on Condor, which powers many of the largest grids in the world and easily scales beyond tens of thousands of nodes.
A mechanism known as flocking lets independent pools use each others' resources, controllable by customizable policies.
Multiple standards-based APIs
A web service interface provides job submission and management functionality. A command-line interface (CLI) provides a highly scriptable—with consistent output—interface to all functionality.
Scheduling functions include:
- High-throughput scheduling: Millions of batch jobs can be run through MRG Grid.
- Low-latency scheduling: Red Hat Enterprise MRG's integration of Messaging and Grid technology lets you schedule jobs and get results from MRG Grid deployments in the millisecond range.
- Desktop cycle harvesting: Desktop cycle harvesting lets you leverage the unused capacity of desktops to add processing power to your grid.
- Flexible scheduling policies: ClassAds provides a flexible language for policy and metadata descriptions.
- Workflow management: The ability to specify job dependencies, via DAGMan, allows the construction and execution of complex workflows.
- Flexible administration policies
- Job-level control rules
- License management to ensure optimal usage of application licenses
- Easy configuration
- Ability to enforce new configuration changes without having to take the grid down
- Quick installs through multiple well-maintained and individually patchable RPMs
- Ability to deploy every component in an HA fashion
- Real-time monitoring and historical reporting
- Alerts from every component
- Historical reports to understand usage, perform audits, and conduct capacity planning
MRG Grid lets you submit a virtual machine (VM) as a user job, and supports migration of the VM.
With MRG Grid, you can use computing resources at cloud-based environments like Amazon EC2.
