Condor Administrators' Tutorial

If you set up or run Condor pools or flocks or are considering doing so, you should come on Tuesday 12 October. If you're new to Condor we recommend you attend Monday as well.
Groups who are experienced at running or using Condor and the Condor team themselves are aware of potential improvements and additions that could be made. They are also aware of the value of sharing best practice. The final three days will bring them together, to form a community, to share ideas and to tease out a good strategy for the future support and development of Condor and the tools used with it. We hope that resource providers will be interested in helping to shape that strategy.

If you would like to stay to hear more about experience with Condor, you are welcome to stay on Wednesday. If you plan to stay, please register, and indicate you're staying for only part of the time by specifying your leaving date.

To apply to attend this tutorial please use NeSC's event application form.

There will be insufficient work stations for hands on work at NeSC due to the large demand for Monday and Tuesday's courses. We are sorry we do not have more resources. Therefore, if you can it would be very helpful if you could bring a laptop. Please see information for participants for further information on what you should download onto your laptop prior to attending.

Provisional Programme

This programme is PROVISIONAL, and subject to change!

Tuesday 12th October
Condor Administrators and Instructors day led by Zachary Miller and Todd Tannenbaum of Condor group, University of Wisconsin, Assisted by John Kewley (CCLRC),Bruce Beckles (University of Cambridge) and Clovis Chapman (UCL).

A logical progression building from the previous day, and aimed at advanced Condor users, administrators, support and training personnel. This will involve workshops providing hands-on interaction with more advanced Condor functionality including Condor-G, Flocking, Glide-in, deployment of Very Large Pools, Customising, advanced configuration, troubleshooting, debugging and fine-tuning Condor.

If you are new to Condor or require advanced tuition, these two days will be invaluable - and the only UK opportunity during 2004 for you to meet and get one-to-one advice and tutoring from members of the Condor team.
