Introduction to HTCondor-CE service

When: 
Wednesday, June 17, 2020 - 15:30 to 16:30
Description: 

The HTCondor-CE software is a site gateway that accepts remote resource requests (i.e., pilot jobs) and passes them along to the site's local batch system (e.g. Grid Engine, HTCondor, LSF, PBS Pro/Torque, or Slurm). 

Based on HTCondor, HTCondor-CE is widely used across the Open Science Grid (OSG) as the preferred Compute Element (CE) solution, and is now an official part of the HTCondor Software Suite. 

With the retirement of CREAM endpoints across the EGI sites planned by end of 2020, HTCondor-CE could be considered a good alternative as a CE endpoint solution and this talk will explain the reasons by giving an overview of the HTCondor-CE architecture, configuration, APEL and BDII support, and feature roadmap.

Learning goal: 

Learn about about the HTCondor-CE service and how it could be considered a good alternative as a CE endpoint solution
