Desktop computing

If you want to compute jobs on nodes without SSH connections then this feature is for you.

On the nodes you have to run “”. This script polls the OAR server via a CGI HTTP script.

Usage examples:
  • if you want to run a program that you know is installed on nodes:

    oarsub -t desktop_computing /path/to/program

    Then /path/to/program is run and the files created in the running directory is retrieved where oarsub was launched.

  • if you want to copy a working environment and then launch the program:

    oarsub -t desktop_computing -s . ./

    The content of ”.” is transfred to the node, ”./” is run and everything will go back.
