Where can I find information about metascheduling on XSEDE digital services?

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:
