Workshop on batch systems (Chair: Tony Cass)
A key aim of this workshop is to enhance communications between users and developers of local resource scheduling systems and Grid-level resource scheduling. At present, HEP sites use a variety of local resouce schedulers to maintain fine-grained control over heterogeneous local resources according to site policies. At the Grid level, however, the scheduling often treats all resources at a site as homogeneous and equally available to all VOs. Can we improve Grid level scheduling to reflect the fine-grained level of control locally? If so, how? If not, what will be the impact on local operations in the future?
How are local batch schedulers used at HEP sites?
