P* Pilot-Job Implementation based on SAGA-Python

Project Description
BigJob
=============

The SAGA BigJob framework is a SAGA-based pilot job implementation. The Simple API for Grid Applications (SAGA) is a high-level, easy-to-use API for accessing distributed resources. SAGA BigJob supports a wide range of application types, and is usable over a broad range of infrastructures, i.e., it is general-purpose, extensible and interoperable. Unlike other common pilot job systems SAGA BigJob
(i) natively supports MPI job and
(ii) works on a variety of back-end systems, generally reflecting the advantage of using a SAGA-based approach.

Installation
-------------

$ curl https://raw.github.com/saga-project/BigJob/master/bootstrap/bigjob-bootstrap.py -o bigjob-bootstrap.py
$ python bigjob-bootstrap.py $HOME/.bigjob/python/
$ . $HOME/.bigjob/python/bin/activate

See https://github.com/saga-project/BigJob/wiki/ for further information. The Wiki includes among many things information on how to setup BigJob on various machines, e.g. on XSEDE (Ranger, Kraken) or FutureGrid.


Configuration of Redis Coordination Backend
-------------------------------------

BigJob requires [Redis](http://redis.io) for communication between BigJob manager/agent. Use the following steps to install Redis.

Mac Homebrew:

brew install redis redis-tools

Linux:
Download Redis http://redis.io/download
Currently only tested with Redis 2.2.12

$ tar -xzvf redis-2.2.12.tar.gz
$ cd redis-2.2.12
$ make
$ make install (if root)


Start Redis (redis-server executable is located in src/ dir):

cd src
./redis-server

Examples:

Please modify COORDINATION_URL on top of example to the correct Redis backend!
