Scratch Space - Not Approved for Experiments

Maybe use somewhere else.


Grid jobs run on the workers under a group account. An environment variable $GROUP should be automatically set to the experiment you are working on when doing batch submissions, assuming you are working from an experiment-specific VM (mu2egpvm02, minervagpvm01, etc). Currently supported values for the $GROUP variable can be found at:

In FermiGrid, the underlying job scheduler is CONDOR. This is the code that receives requests to run jobs, queues up the requests, prioritizes them, and then sends each job to a batch slot on an appropriate worker node. CONDOR allows related jobs to be submitted with a single command. If enough worker nodes are available, all instances will run in parallel, each on its own worker node.
