The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) provides metascheduling tools to help researchers manage the timing and location of their jobs in queues on XSEDE digital services.

Note: Other terms commonly used for metascheduling include "automatic resource selection" and "global queue".

Metascheduling tools on XSEDE include:

  • Master Control Program (MCP): MCP submits multiple copies of a job to optimize its start time. When one copy begins to execute, MCP cancels the other copies.
  • Condor-G with Matchmaking: This service uses criteria specified in the job submission script to dynamically match a job to the XSEDE clusters on which it can run.

For more on metascheduling on XSEDE digital services, see these XSEDE User Portal pages:
