Clinic: Compute Services - CVMFS, HTCondor-CE

  • Catalin Condurache (


This session will provide technical support for existing and new users of EGI compute services. During the session experts will share technical information, usage tips and tricks about the HTCondor-CE and CVMFS technologies, and will answer questions from the audience. The session will be interactive - A perfect opportunity to bring questions, and to deep-dive into HTCondor-CE and CVMFS!

HTCondor-CE is a special configuration of the HTCondor software designed to be a job gateway solution for computing grids (e.g in EGI or in the US-based Open Science Grid). It is configured to use a job router daemon to delegate jobs from the users to batch systems deployed in distributed compute centres.

The CernVM File System (CVMFS) provides a scalable, reliable and low-maintenance software distribution service. CVMFS is implemented as a POSIX read-only file system in user space (a FUSE module), and it is used by various scientific communities in and beyond EGI to distribute software to distributed compute resources over large area networks.

Main target audience
Scientists, representatives of scientific communities, software and platform developers, scientific data providers.
