Solving BIG problems with Open Source: Condor

The scientific problems faced by researchers every day have (usually) a solution. However, finding that solution is often limited by the sheer complexity of the problem, something that cannot be done in a personal computer.

Using a computing cluster is a great helper … but it has its features, quirks and hacks. In this talk we present Condor, a queue distribution system used in a lot of HPC clusters (and in HERMES, the I3A’s one). We’ll see the actual setup of our Condor deployment, all the configuration tuning and some success cases (and pit traps) that we’ve come across our life with this big bird.
