okay, thanks. You mean sometimes its better to use load- balancing rather
than parallel- clustering? Or use it in combination? How to made this
disition? Are there anywhere some parameters I can use?
I find condor also a good solution.
Some of you use "condor" or "jobscheduler" in production and can tell me
about his/ her experience ?
Probably not, since that form of job scheduling/management is almost
universally not applicable to any type of workload an ISP does. You need
to talk to people in bioinformatics or things like that. ISPs are usually
mostly concerned with interactive/live load balancing, not job scheduling
and queuing. If we're queuing jobs we're dead ;) Load balancers are real
time devices, job schedulers and managers are non-real time devices. The
former is useful when you have enough compute resources and the jobs are
all small, the latter when the jobs are all large, or possibly when you
really do not have enough compute resources to complete the tasks in real
time, or when there's little or no requirement for interactivity. Very
different animals from what ISPs use/need do. That said, billing systems
can be handled by job scheduling/management, so can log analysis. But I
doubt anyone does that here.
