Download HTCondor 9.1.0 / 9.0.1

Spread the love

The HTCondor Team at the University of Wisconsin-Madison has released new development and stable versions of its workload management system HTCondor. The version numbers have ended up at 9.1.0 and 9.0.1. HTCondor focuses on the management of computing intensive tasks and can distribute them over several connected nodes. The user sends his task to HTCondor, after which it handles the process based on set policies and the availability of connected resources, to finally send the results back to the user. HTCondor, for example, can control a dedicated Beowulf cluster, but also ordinary desktops that have nothing to do. While SC16 Google, Fermilab and the HTCondor Team have a 160k-core cloud-based elastic compute cluster demonstrated, and last year, the National Sience Foundation selected HTCondor as part of her Partnership to Advance Throughput Computing. The announcement of these releases looks like this:
