HTCondor is a modern batch system which replaces LSF, PBS or Torque systems on many computing sites. We installed our computing capacities to this system during the first months of 2018. The final shutdown of the batch system Torque was done on March 16, 2018.
There are many suitable tutorials and Howto documents about HTCondor. Here we list a few links:
- HTCondor user tutorial
- useful examples
- CERN – Quick Start Guide
- CERN – HTCondor Users Guide
- HTCondor Home Page
Use these materials, they are mostly applicable in our environment too. Job submission can be done from our standard user Interfaces (ui.farm.particle.cz).
The most useful information on HTCondor job submission can be found in HTCondor Batch at farm.particle.cz presented by Petr Vokac at Golias Farm Users Meeting in February 2018.
