Basic setup

The basic setup is a standard version of a SZTAKI Desktop Grid site, i.e. beyond the SZTAKI-BOINC software package, the 3G Bridge component is also installed. 3G Bridge enhances the way of submitting and handling jobs of the BOINC project, therefore we recommend to start with this setup. Based on this setup, both a volunteer or a private desktop grid can be formed. The basic setup is the starting point to use the various features and services 3G Bridge provides through its various plugins.

In order to realise this scenario, perform the following steps:

  1. Install the SZTAKI-BOINC software based on this manual
  2. Install a 3G Bridge component based on this manual
  3. Configure the DC-API plugin to let 3G Bridge access the BOINC database
  4. Optionally, configure the MetaJob plugin based on this MetaJob manual

As a result, you will have a full-featured BOINC project enhanced with the submission mechanism provided by 3G Bridge through its plugins. DC-API plugin will handle the individual workunits in the BOINC project, while the MetaJob plugin will enable the user to submit huge number of jobs in one turn. For more details, please read the relevant manuals.

NOTE: By default 3G Bridge comes with a SOAP interface, but you can alternatively change to the REST interface depending on your scenario and/or usage preferences.
