recent research activities on grid computing
Recent Research Activities on Grid Computing
  • The College started its research on grid computing since 2000, however, the research on high performance computing dated back to 1980.
  • The College started to collaborate with UCSD (US), AIST (Japan) and Platform Inc (Ca) from 2003 in the fields of grid computing and middleware.
    • From 2004 to 2005, working with Platform the College delivered the WSRF based CSF (Community Scheduler Framework) as a contribution component of GT4.
    • To provide a grid test bed for data-intensive applications like iGap, JLU, UCSD and AIST are working at integrating meta-scheduler (CSF), local scheduler (LSF/SGE) and Gfarm.

Recent Research Activities on Grid Computing
    • From 2005, JLU started to get involved in the Pacific Rim Undergraduate Experience by sending students and faculty members to UCSD.
    • Another on-going co-research project between JLU and Platform is aiming at developing a grid operating system prototype.
  • Project Funded by CNSF
    • To research the methods to monitor and evaluate the execution performance of grid applications
community scheduler framework 4 0 csf4
Community Scheduler Framework 4.0 – CSF4
  • What is CSF
    • Full name: Community Scheduler Framework
    • CSF is a meta-scheduler working at grid level
    • The first version of CSF, CSF3, was developed based on GT3-OGSI, contributed by Platform (a CA software company/LSF)
    • CSF4 is the GT4-WSRF compliant version of CSF, providing the same functionalities as CSF3
    • CSF is an open source project and can be accessed at (the cvs mainline code is csf4)
    • The development team of CSF4 is from Jilin University

implementing data aware scheduling in gfarm using lsf plug in mechanism
Implementing Data Aware Scheduling in Gfarm using LSF Plug-in Mechanism


  • Data-intensive jobs are drawing more attentions
    • iGap - UCSD/NBCR (Dr. Wilfred W. Li)
  • Gfarm – (a data grid middleware , AIST Dr. Osamu,)

Gfarm is a global parallel file system and provides a single file system image to the users

  • Like most data grid software, gfarm needs a job queuing and scheduling mechanism
    • Manual method to locate data-affinity hosts and manage data is not scalable (Gfarm – gfrun/mpirun, without job queuing)
      • Conflicts between users
      • Load imbalance
data aware scheduling
Data aware Scheduling
  • Job scheduling (move job to data)
    • Put jobs in the queues
    • Find the best hosts for gfarm jobs
    • Constraint the number of running jobs to access a data replica
  • Data management (move data to jobs)
    • create new data replicas when the job load is high
      • Find the host location based on job resource requirement
      • Avoid generating multiple large data replicas within one scheduling session
    • delete the obsolete data replicas automatically
using the lsf scheduler plug in mechanism
Using the LSF scheduler plug-in mechanism
  • No need to write a job scheduler from scratch
  • Be able to work with other scheduler policies like FCFS, fair-share, preemption, backfill, etc.

plan for near future
Plan For Near Future
  • Continue working on the integration of CSF, local schedulers and gfarm together with UCSD/AIST etc.
  • Add more features to CSF
    • support array job
    • support work flow (job dependency)
    • support web service jobs
    • support resource reservations
apply pragma membership
Apply PRAGMA Membership
  • To build the strong collaborative relationships with world leading institutes and universities is a high priority of our college
  • We are going to enhance and extend the existence collaborations with PRAGMA in the fields of Grid Computing and Bioinformatics etc
  • We are willing to be a institutional member of PRAGMA
  • We are willing tohost future PRAGMA workshops
