CiGri: Computing resource Reaper
Participant : Olivier Richard [correspondent] .
CiGri (see http://cigri.imag.fr/ ) is a middleware which gathers the unused computing resource from intranet infrastructure and makes it available for the processing of large set of tasks. It manages the execution of large sets of parametric tasks on lightweight grid by submitting individual jobs to each batch scheduler. It is s associated to the OAR resource management system (batch scheduler). Users can easily monitor and control their set of jobs through a web portal. CiGri provides mechanisms to identify job error causes, to isolate faulty components and to resubmit jobs in a safer context.
