HTCondor MW
MW is a tool for making a master-worker style application that works in the distributed, opportunistic environment of HTCondor. MW applications use HTCondor as a resource management tool, and can use either HTCondor-PVM or MW-File a file-based, remote I/O scheme for message passing. Writing a parallel application for use in the HTCondor system can be a lot of work. Since the workers are not dedicated machines, they can leave the computation at any time. Machines can arrive at any time, too, and they can be suspended and resume computation. Machines can also be of varying architechtures and speeds. MW will handle all this variation and uncertainty in the opportunistic environment of HTCondor.
