A Call for Community Testing is a mechanism to notify our users that new Globus code is available for testing in the field. Through these calls, we hope to expose the code to a wide variety of usage scenarios early in its development process. The ultimate goals are to catch bugs that have historically been found only after final releases, and to elicit feedback from the community on ways our software can be improved.
- Install the software in a non-production environment. Use the 4.1.1 distribution
the code can also be retrieved directly from CVS using the tag
- Exercise the software.
- Log your experiences in http://bugzilla.globus.org/globus/ under the "GRAM" product. Please mention 4.1.1 explicitly in the body of the report.
- If you have any questions or comments regarding this component, join the firstname.lastname@example.org list to participate in discussions with other testers. (To subscribe, read the instructions here.)
- Optional: Consider sending descriptions of your tests to email@example.com so that we might use them to build standard tests in the future.
Web Services Grid Resource Allocation and Management (GRAM4) component comprises a set of WSRF-compliant Web services to locate, submit, monitor, and cancel jobs on Grid computing resources. GRAM4 is not a job scheduler, but rather a set of services and clients for communicating with a range of different batch/cluster job schedulers using a common protocol. GRAM4 is meant to address a range of jobs where reliable operation, stateful monitoring, credential management, and file staging are important.
GRAM depends on the following GT components:
- Java WS Core
- Transport-Level Security
- Delegation Service
- MDS - internal libraries
Other scheduler adapters available for GT 4.1.1 release:
The XML::Parser Perl module is required for job description extension support.
For more information, see the GRAM4 Release Notes.
