Condor (High Throughput Computing)
Condor is a batch system for queuing, scheduling, and prioritizing compute-intensive jobs. It is developed by the Condor team at the University of Wisconsin. In a nutshell, Condor matches user submitted jobs to available computer resources. These resource could be desktop machines or owner-based clusters. As long as the machine has the required resources the job will be sent to the machine and run.
Useful For: Users wanting to run a large batch of small, single processor jobs. These jobs may be short (minutes) or long (days/weeks).
Not Useful For: Users interested in running parallel programs, running with large memory requirements. Please see the High Performance Computing documentation for suggestions.
