Description

The Italian site CINECA has a cluster, Marconi 100, with powerpc machines (ppc64le architecture).
Would be nice for the AUTO selection to recognize also this platform.

There is also help needed with the building of the condor tarball:
  • Glideins download an HTCondor stripped down tarball from the Factory
  • the Factory builds this starting from an HTCondor tarball (during upgrade command)
  • there is no official PPC tarball (I researched and the closest one is an EPEL RPM of ancient v8.3)

History

#1 Updated by Marco Mambelli 4 months ago

Support part of the ticket (via emails and meeting participation):
  • research of possible tarballs to build the glidein one
  • work w/ Tommaso (CINECA) to build a PPC tarball
  • test that the tarball from Tommaso works: v3 is OK
  • request to OSG (Tim Theisen) to update the EPEL one to the latest production HTC.
    • The hold-back was the support for CREAM that has gone away as 11/30 with the end of OSG 3.4 as I pointed out
    • OSG will start the process to release HTC 8.8.12 for EPEL 7 (RHEL/CentOS 7)

Changes are in v36/25275
Note for the ticket: ppc64le - is the little-endian version of PPC64 processors (for easier compatibility w/ x86) introduced w/ Power 8. Binaries are incompatible w/ ppc64 (regular PPC 64-bit architecture).
