Submission Scripts for Scientific Simulations on DEISA

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


The DEISA Services for the Heterogeneous management Layer, better known as the DESHL, allows users and their applications to manage batch jobs and data across a computing Grid ill a uniform manner regardless of the underlying hardware and software on the various nodes. The DESHL provides a means for coordinating and integrating services for distributed resource management in a heterogeneous supercomputing environment. It provides users and their applications with a command line tool and application programming interfaces for job and data management in DEISA's UNICORE-based grid.

The DESHL employs the SAGA (Simple API for Grid Applications) and JSDL (Job Submission Description Language) emerging grid standards, as well as the Open Group Batch Environment Services specification. Reliance on Grid standards will allow interoperability with other Grid environments.

Three DESHL-based bash script,, have been created which demonstrate how DEISA can be exploited directly from the user's workstation. These scripts are for Task Farms, Workflows, and for Code Migration/Resubmission.
