htcondor-doc – distributed workload management system - documentation

Like other full-featured batch systems, HTCondor provides a job queueing mechanism, scheduling policy, priority scheme, resource monitoring, and resource management. Users submit their serial or parallel jobs to HTCondor; HTCondor places them into a queue. It chooses when and where to run the jobs based upon a policy, carefully monitors their progress, and ultimately informs the user upon completion.

Unlike more traditional batch queueing systems, HTCondor can also effectively harness wasted CPU power from otherwise idle desktop workstations. HTCondor does not require a shared file system across machines - if no shared file system is available, HTCondor can transfer the job’s data files on behalf of the user.

This package provides HTCondor’s documentation in HTML and PDF format, as well as configuration and other examples.
