a python DRMAA library
If you simply want to run Python functions on a DRMAA-compatible grid, use GridMap.
A DRMAA-compatible cluster (e.g., Grid Engine)
To use the DRMAA Python library, you need to install it via pip:
pip install drmaa
and then setup any environment variables that are necessary for your particular DRM system. For SGE, this means SGE_ROOT and SGE_CELL, which should be set as follows:
export SGE_ROOT=/path/to/gridengine export SGE_CELL=default
where /path/to/gridengine/ is replaced with the actual path to your Grid Engine installation, and default is replaced with your installation’s actual cell. The path is typically /var/lib/gridengine.
You will also need access to the libdrmaa.so.1.0 C library, which can often be installed as part of the libdrmaa-dev package on most Unixes. Once you have installed that, you may need to tell DRMAA Python where it is installed by setting the DRMAA_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable, if it is not installed in a location that Python usually looks for libraries.
