ARCHIVED: Where can I find information about running applications on the Open Science Grid?

This content has been archived, and is no longer maintained by Indiana University. Resources linked from this page may no longer be available or reliable.

The Open Science Grid (OSG) virtual cluster is based on Condor. For information about using Condor to submit and manage jobs, see the Condor Users' Manual.

Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) users can find information about running jobs on the OSG, in the Running Your Application section of the OSG user guide in the XSEDE User Portal.

For a set of sample jobs and workflows, log into the OSG host (, and navigate to the /opt/sample-jobs directory. README files are provided, including details for each sample. The /opt/sample-jobs/single/ directory contains a single Condor job example. Use single jobs for a smaller set of jobs, or if the job structure is simple (e.g., parameter sweeps).
