Supercharge Your LAN With Condor, part 1 - page 3
If you've unpacked the Condor tarball somewhere central, you can log on to the client, cd to that directory, and run this command:
condor_install --type=execute,submit --local-dir=/dir/condor/hosts/myclient --central-manager=myserver.example.com --verboseNote that you need to specify the client name (for --local-dir) and the manager name. (If you didn't unpack the files centrally, you'll have to copy the release tarball somewhere appropriate and add a --install=/path/to/condorrelease.tar option.)
As with the server, set the CONDOR_CONFIG variable, and execute /dir/condor/sbin/condor_master to start the Condor daemon! Check it's running by grepping the process list for condor_* processes.
Once you've got everything up and running, you may want to set up a start script so that Condor starts automatically on boot in the future.
You probably also want to have a look at the rules that govern when a job can be run on a client. These are in Part 3 of the global config file. The file sets the "UWisc - CS Dept" rules (look for the definition of UWCS_WANT_SUSPEND in the config file). The rules as defined here are probably a good start -- you can adjust them later if you start having problems, or you can override them for a particular machine if need be.
OK, now you have your server and your first client set up. In the next part of this piece we'll look at how to submit a job.
Solid state disks (SSDs) made a splash in consumer technology, and now the technology has its eyes on the enterprise storage market. Download this eBook to see what SSDs can do for your infrastructure and review the pros and cons of this potentially game-changing storage technology.
