Xgrid Job Types
Xgrid is not appropriate for all types of HPC jobs. Below is a list of attributes that can help you decide if your job can benefit from Xgrid or not.
Jobs with the following attributes may run well in an Xgrid environment:
- Single threaded jobs that need to be run many times
- Jobs with relatively short execution times ( less than 4 hours)
Jobs with the following attributes will probably NOT run well in an Xgrid environment:
- Jobs which need large data sets as input
- Jobs which generate large output data sets that need to be copied elsewhere after completion
