Connect to a Third Party Batch Processing System

FlowTracer provides default implementations of interfaces for some of the Batch Processing Systems. FlowTracer also provides Tcl APIs for easy, flexible and extensible implementation of interfaces to the Batch Processing System of your interest. This enables FlowTracer to fit into any existing Enterprise Grid.

Architecture Diagram

The following diagram shows how FlowTracer projects work with several Batch Processing Systems. In this example, they are Accelerator and SGE.

Figure 1.

Batch Processing System Agent

You can create a Batch Processing System agent as seen in the diagram as the BPS agent. It is the interface that submits jobs to the Batch Processing System that it gets from a FlowTracer server, instead of executing them directly.
