We Watch the Small Details You Can Focus on the Goal!
When you're responsible for the resource management of your workload cluster, you have learned that the smallest things can really clod up your process flow. Jaryba MicroScheduler was designed to give the grid management team the capibilites to manage even the smallest details. Jaryba MicroScheduler works with current high level schedulers like Platform LSF, Altair PBS Professional, Grid Engine and most of the scheduler available on the market today.
Increase Cluster Utilization With SmartSuspend
Jaryba SmartSuspend is a Linux based cluster workload management solution that enables priority based job suspension.
SmartSuspend releases the system resources including memory, CPU, and floating software licenses making them immediately available for higher priority jobs. SmartSuspend works with any serial or parallel application and without modification to the application or the underlying operating system.
Understand Your Cluster Utilization
Jaryba SmartSim™ is a sophisticated resource evaluation tool that helps current and potential users of SmartSuspend understand the utilization savings SmartSuspend brings to their clusters.
SmartSim scours resource manager's job logs gathering pertinent information used to determine resource savings and overall gains in cluster utilization. Jaryba SmartSim currently works with the Platform LSF environment.
Resource Manager and MPI Integration
SmartSuspend seamlessly integrates with most workload management software such as Platfomr LSF, Oracle Grid Engine, Altair PBS Pro, Run-time Design Automation NC and Adaptive Computing Moab. SmartSuspend support both serial and parallel applications on your cluster. Parallel applications are supported with Intel MPI, Platform MPI (HP-MPI), Scali MPI, OpenMPI, and MPICH stacks.
SmartSuspend gives your current resource management solution the capability to make the best decisions, at the right time, to meet your cluster and business goals when scheduling job on your gird. In existing customer we have found that SmartSuspend has returned upwards of 25% faster turn-around times on high priority workloads, delivering at a faster rate what the company deems most important allowing them to focus on truly what is important to their business goals with out jeopardizing lower workloads.
When load on a grid is high, there are strict Quality of Service requirements for high priority jobs, and changes in business needs can result in changing job priorities, deploying SmartSuspend can have significant paybacks. It can mean the difference between delivering unacceptable Quality of Service, sluggish response to changing business needs and a significant waste of grid resources, and having good Quality of Service and responsiveness to changing business needs without wasted resources.
Maximize Cluster Utilization
SmartSuspend improves utilization of grid resources by allowing lower priority jobs to be suspended freeing their resources for use by higher priority jobs. To achieve the same business driven Quality of Service without SmartSuspend would require lower priority jobs to be terminated and waste the resources consumed until the time of termination.
Manage Expensive Software Licenses
Software licenses can be a significant portion of a grid's cost. Keeping licenses in reserve for high priority work means that they often remain unused and wastes money. SmartSuspend ensures that all software licenses are fully utilized by releasing them during a suspend operation making them immediately available for the next scheduled job.
