This is an installation manual for deploying and configuring a modified BOINC client (that is inserting the incoming workunits as jobs into a 3G Bridge queue).
Important note: if you want to implement a DG to gLite bridging, perform the step of the gLite plugin installation first, then continue with this one.
This component is often used in combination with the gLite plugin to transfer jobs from DG to gLite, therefore we assume that you already performed the steps of the gLite plugin installation and assume you are using Scientific Linux 4 or 5.
Scientific Linux 4:
# cat /etc/yum.repos.d/edges.repo [edges] name=EDGeS Grid Deployment baseurl=http://intraweb.edges-grid.eu/public/grid_deployment/repo enabled=1
Scientific Linux 5:
# cat /etc/yum.repos.d/edgi.repo [edgi] name=EDGI Grid Deployment baseurl=http://www.edgi-grid.eu/downloads/repo/sl5 enabled=1 protect=1
you may set other optional parameters such as logging otherwise [defaults] specified in the config file are used
$ chown 3g-bridge:3g-bridge /var/lib/3g-bridge/jobwrapper-boinc
(An example jobwrapper_client.xml file is provided in the examples directory.)
$ boinc_jobwrapper_client --no_gui_rpc --attach_project <URL> <KEY>
The BOINC jobwrapper client begins fetching workunits from the BOINC and places them into the 3G Bridge queue i.e. to the database.
