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.

There are many suitable tutorials and Howto documents about HTCondor, see Useful Links to HTCondor Documentation. The most useful information on HTCondor job submission can be found in HTCondor Batch at presented by Petr Vokac at Golias Farm Users Meeting in February 2018.

Job submission can be done from our standard user Interfaces (
