Large scale distributed systems like Grids are difficult to study only from theoretical models and simulators. Most Grids deployed at large scale are production platforms that are inappropriate research tools because of their limited reconfiguration, control and monitoring capabilities. In this paper, we present Grid’5000, a 5000 CPUs nation-wide(More)
Large scale distributed systems like Grid gather several characteristics making them difficult to study only from theoretical models and simulators. Most of Grid deployed at large scale are production platforms making them inappropriate research tools because of their limited reconfiguration, control and monitoring capabilities. In this paper, we present(More)
In this article we present the design choices and the evaluation of a batch scheduler for large clusters, named OAR. This batch scheduler is based upon an original design that emphasizes on low software complexity by using high level tools. The global architecture is built upon the scripting language Perl and the relational database engine Mysql. The goal(More)
This article deals with TakTuk, a middleware that deploys efficiently parallel remote executions on large scale grids (thousands of nodes). This tool is mostly intended for interactive use: distributed machines administration and parallel applications development. Thus, it has to minimize the time required to complete the whole deployment process. To(More)
Focused around the field of the exploitation and the administration of high performance large-scale parallel systems, this article describes the work carried out on the deployment of environment on high computing clusters and grids. We initially present the problems involved in the installation of an environment (OS, middleware, libraries, applications...)(More)
