Grid Engine Administration Training '12

We were pleased to host the third Grid Engine Training from HPCKP. This was a training course aimed to share expertise and strategies of the most popular Batch Queue System in High Performance Computing. It was held at the University of Barcelona, from 26th to 28th March, 2012. It was organized by the University of Barcelona (UB) and the Reference Network on Theoretical and Computational Chemistry (XRQTC).

About GE : The Grid Engine is an open source batch-queuing system used on a computer farm or high-performance computing (HPC) cluster and is responsible for accepting, scheduling, dispatching, and managing the remote and distributed execution of large numbers of standalone, parallel or interactive user jobs. This software was developed and supported by Sun Microsystems (Know as SGE).

In late 2010, after the purchase of Sun by Oracle, the Grid Engine 6.2 update 6 source code was not included with the binaries, and changes were not put back to the project's source repository. In response to this, the Grid Engine community started several projects to continue to develop and maintain a free implementation of Grid Engine. At this time, we can find some forks of SGE:
