UCLA Grid Portal: A Grid is a collection of independently owned and administered resources which have been joined together by a software and hardware infrastructure that interacts with the resources and the users of the resources to provide coordinated dynamic resource sharing. The UCLA Grid Portal (UGP) provides a single web interface to all the computational clusters in a Grid. It is used to run the UCLA Grid Portal and Grid Portals at other University of California campuses which are participating in the UC Grid.
Queue Scripts: To submit a batch job to a scheduler such as the Sun Grid Engine, the scheduler used to manage batch jobs on IDRE-hosted clusters, users normally have to know and use the scheduler commands and, for each job to be submitted, prepare a command file of scheduler commands for that job.
The IDRE-developed queue scripts autmatically create scheduler command files for user jobs and handle the interface between the user and the scheduler. Not only do the queue scripts simplify the submitting of jobs for the users, but use of the queue scripts increases job success by reducing mistakes.
