Joint EGEE and EDGeS Summer School on Grid Application Support
1132 Budapest XIII. Victor Hugo u. 18-22.
(MTA SZTAKI), Péter Kacsuk
EGEE is the largest service grid in Europe using the gLite grid middleware. BOINC is the most used volunteer desktop grid technology in the world. EDGeS integrates gLite based service grids with BOINC and XtremWeb based desktop grids. In this way the EDGeS infrastructure is the largest potential grid infrastructure in the world. The subject of the summer school is to give insights to these technologies (gLite, BOINC, XtremWeb and EDGeS) as well as to tools and programming environments by which user can develop and run applications on this enhanced grid infrastructure.
P-GRADE portal: Managing workflow based parameter studies on EGEE (lecture and hands-on)1h
Parameter Sweep applications (one algorithm applied on a set of independent inputs) belong to the distinguished candidates which may exploit the capacity of the Grid because of their thirst for processor cycles.
The P-Grade portal harnessing remote storages as location of source and destination data of such calculations offers an exceptionally easy to use infrastructure to the design and the execution of parameter sweep calculations.
The customized P-Grade portal jobs of type Generator, Autogenerator, and Collector framing the parametric workflow runs may give additional support to the user to create source and elaborate destination data an even more comfortable way
