XSEDE Capability Delivery Plan for "CB-14: Submit tasks to any of the high-throughput computing queues available to a campus"

Use Case CB-14: Submit tasks to any of the high-throughput computing queues available to a campus

Area: Community Building
URLs: Public, Review

Executive Summary: A campus researcher needs to submit tasks to one of the high-throughput computing (HTC) resources available to his or her campus.

First CDP: 2019-01-15
Current CDP: 2019-01-15
Current Implementation Status: 
Issues to be Addressed: 
Issues Remaining: 

In addition to the two JIRA activities listed here, the XCRI team would need to do the following things for each campus that elects to use the campus queue distribution.

  1. Roughly twenty hours (2.5 person-days) per campus of XCRI staff effort for configuration and integration with local authentication, storage and other local infrastructures. This per-campus effort will diminish over time as we integrate the campus queue with more common infrastructure components.
  2. Roughly 8 person-hours (1 person-day) per campus for an introductory-level training session on job submission.
Time & Effort Summary: 

XSEDE does not currently offer this capability. The current proposal is to present the idea to XSEDE campus champions and gauge their reactions to judge whether further effort is worthwhile. (This would be less than one day of effort for the XCRI team.) Assuming the reaction is favorable, we could proceed with the 2 person-week packaging task (see JIRA link), begin deployments on campuses, and schedule training sessions.
