DMTCP (Distributed MultiThreaded Checkpointing) is a tool to transparently checkpointing the state of an arbitrary group of applications including multi-threaded and distributed computations. It operates directly on the user binary executable, with no Linux kernel modules or other kernel mods.

Among the applications supported by DMTCP are Open MPI, MVAPICH2, MATLAB, R, Python, Perl, and many programming languages and shell scripting languages. It supports both TCP sockets and InfiniBand connections. With the use of TightVNC, it can also checkpoint and restart X-Window applications. The OpenGL library for 3D graphics is supported through a special plugin.

This package contains DMTCP binaries.

The Modules package provides for the dynamic modification of a user's environment via modulefiles. Each modulefile contains the information needed to configure the shell for an application. Once the Modules package is initialized, the environment can be modified dynamically on a per-module basis using the module command which interprets modulefiles. Typically modulefiles instruct the module command to alter or set shell environment variables such as PATH, MANPATH, etc. modulefiles may be shared by many users on a system and users may have their own collection to supplement or replace the shared modulefiles. The modules environment is common on SGI/Crays and many workstation farms.

The Globus Toolkit is an open source software toolkit used for building Grid systems and applications. It is being developed by the Globus Alliance and many others all over the world. A growing number of projects and companies are using the Globus Toolkit to unlock the potential of grids for their cause.

The globus-core package is no longer needed with Globus Toolkit 6. This transitional package provides a dummy pkg-config file to fulfill dependencies during the transition. In can be removed when no longer needed.

Grid Engine is software that facilitates "distributed resource management" (DRM). Far more than just simple load-balancing tools or batch scheduling mechanisms, DRM software typically provides the following key features across large sets of distributed resources:

  • Policy based allocation of distributed resources (CPU time, software licenses, etc.)
  • Batch queuing & scheduling
  • Support diverse server hardware, OS and architectures
  • Load balancing & remote job execution
  • Detailed job accounting statistics
  • Fine-grained user specifiable resources
  • Suspend/resume/migrate jobs
  • Tools for reporting Job/Host/Cluster status
  • Job Arrays
  • Integration & control of parallel jobs

This package contains the Grid Engine user utilities.

Like other full-featured batch systems, HTCondor provides a job queueing mechanism, scheduling policy, priority scheme, resource monitoring, and resource management. Users submit their serial or parallel jobs to HTCondor; HTCondor places them into a queue. It chooses when and where to run the jobs based upon a policy, carefully monitors their progress, and ultimately informs the user upon completion.

Unlike more traditional batch queueing systems, HTCondor can also effectively harness wasted CPU power from otherwise idle desktop workstations. HTCondor does not require a shared file system across machines - if no shared file system is available, HTCondor can transfer the job's data files on behalf of the user.

This package can set up an appropriate initial configuration at install time for a machine intended either as a member of an existing HTCondor pool or as a "Personal" (single machine) HTCondor pool.

IPython can be used as a replacement for the standard Python shell, or it can be used as a complete working environment for scientific computing (like Matlab or Mathematica) when paired with the standard Python scientific and numerical tools. It supports dynamic object introspections, numbered input/output prompts, a macro system, session logging, session restoring, complete system shell access, verbose and colored traceback reports, auto-parentheses, auto-quoting, and is embeddable in other Python programs.

This package contains the actual terminal shell for Python 2.

MPICH is a high-performance and widely portable implementation of the MPI-3.1 standard from the Argonne National Laboratory. It efficiently supports different computation and communication platforms including commodity clusters, SMPs, massively parallel systems, and high-speed networks. This release has all MPI 3.1 functions and features required by the standard with the exception of support for the "external32" portable I/O format and user-defined data representations for I/O.

This package includes the program binaries necessary to run MPICH programs.

The NorduGrid is a collaboration aiming at development, maintenance and support of the free Grid middleware, known as the Advanced Resource Connector (ARC).

The Advanced Resource Connector (ARC) brings computing resources together across institutional boundaries. This concept is commonly referred to as a "computational grid". Historically, grids address the organisation of distributed storage of data and parallel computation, but arbitrary services are thinkable.

Just like the web, ARC has its roots in the IT infrastructure that was erected to analyse the experiments for high energy physics at CERN. The first release, ARC-0.x, was dependent on Globus, the current release keeps that compatibility but can also be used independently.

With ARC-nox, formerly known as ARC-1, the user gains flexibility with additional services and more supported platforms. The service developer notices that even for persistent functionality across the two major versions, what has been a script on the server side once, that was repeatedly started and ran through, this has now become a service. Those are only started once and can then be queried, which is far more efficient, far more responsive, and is no longer stateless but can observe changes of values over time.

This is a collection of software that help users to share resources in a complex, heterogeneous, and unreliable computing environment. This includes:

  • Chirp: A personal filesystem and I/O protocol that allows unprivileged users to share space securely, efficiently, and conveniently. When combined with Parrot, Chirp allows users to create custom wide-area distributed filesystems.
  • Parrot: A transparent user-level virtual filesystem that allows any ordinary program to be attached to a remote storage device such as an FTP server or a Chirp server.
  • Makeflow: A workflow system for parallel and distributed computing that uses a language very similar to Make.
  • Work Queue: A system and API for building master-worker style programs that scale up to thousands of processors.
  • All Pairs: A computational abstraction for running very large Cartesian products.
  • Wavefront: A computational abstraction for running very large dynamic programming problems.
  • The Fault Tolerant Shell: A high-level programming language that allows users to combine the ease of shell scripting, the power of distributed programming, and the precision of compiled languages. Basically, parallel programming and exception handling for scripts.

MPI for Python (mpi4py) provides bindings of the Message Passing Interface (MPI) standard for the Python programming language, allowing any Python program to exploit multiple processors.

mpi4py is constructed on top of the MPI-1/MPI-2 specification and provides an object oriented interface which closely follows MPI-2 C++ bindings. It supports point-to-point (sends, receives) and collective (broadcasts, scatters, gathers) communications of any picklable Python object as well as optimized communications of Python object exposing the single-segment buffer interface (NumPy arrays, builtin bytes/string/array objects).

PSOM is a lightweight library to manage complex multi-stage data processing. A pipeline is a collection of jobs, i.e. Matlab or Octave code with a well identified set of options that are using files for inputs and outputs. To use PSOM, the only requirement is to generate a description of a pipeline in the form of a simple Matlab/Octave structure. PSOM then automatically offers the following services:

  • Run jobs in parallel using multiple CPUs or within a distributed computing environment.
  • Generate log files and keep track of the pipeline execution. These logs are detailed enough to fully reproduce the analysis.
  • Handle job failures: successful completion of jobs is checked and failed jobs can be restarted.
  • Handle updates of the pipeline: change options or add jobs and let PSOM figure out what to reprocess.
