HPC-03: Use a workflow system to conduct a project on HPC resources
A researcher needs to use a workflow system to carry out a research computing program on one or more HPC resources. The workflow system orchestrates the submission of individual jobs on the HPC resources using a plan provided by the researcher. The workflow system may also use dynamic resource status information to optimize job submissions.
User Importance Summary:
Some research projects that use HPC resources require a large sequence or pattern of jobs to be executed on one or more HPC resources. The human labor to submit these jobs is a poor use of time for highly skilled researchers. A workflow system that automates job submission and management improves research productivity.
Target Communities and Sizes:
Researchers who use workflow systems for HPC projects - 100 < N < 1,000
Educators who use workflow systems in classes - 100 < N < 1,000
