University Desktop Grid

The most typical scenario that fits to the requirements of scientists on universities to execute jobs on a private (i.e. resources owned by the university) desktop grid is called as “University Desktop Grid”. This scenario provides

  • an easy-to-install SZTAKI-BOINC package to schedule the incoming workunits among the attached BOINC clients
  • a 3G Bridge component to ease the handling of jobs submitted externally
  • a MetaJob plugin to handle the submission of multiple jobs
  • a GBAC virtualization framework (deployed as BOINC application) to enable the execution of non-registered linux binaries
  • a comfortable web-based graphical portal, called gUSE, to ease the submission of jobs and complex applications like scientific workflows

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

  1. Setup a SZTAKI-BOINC server based on this manual
  2. Install the 3G Bridge component based on this manual
  3. Configure the DC-API plugin to let 3G Bridge access the BOINC database
  4. Configure the WS-SOAP interface of 3G Bridge based on this manual
  5. Optionally, configure the MetaJob plugin for 3G Bridge
  6. Deploy the GBAC virtualisation framework based on this manual
  7. Install the gUSE portal and configure it against the WS-SOAP interface of your DG project

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. GBAC will enable the execution of non-registered applications in the BOINC project. Finally, with gUSE the submission of jobs and workflows is enhanced by a graphical portal. For more details, please read the relevant descriptions and manuals.
