Abstract: In this paper we describe the design and implementation of a more lightweight resource broker based on Condor-G. A daemon service has been developed which can read LDAP based information and translate the published information into a Condor ClassAd. This additionally draws from a connected organization management system registered system capability information e.g., SMP, MPI and installed software. In addition, a command line submission tool has been developed, which makes user authorization decisions, to minimize submission errors as well as additional individual tools for viewing the system state including resources utilized and jobs queued and removal of tasks that have been submitted erroneously. This broker service is running on the University of Oxford Campus Grid in a production environment and has efficiently distributed over 63k individual tasks to university and UK National Grid Service resources.
