NAME

janitor - ARC Dynamic Runtime Environment Maintenance  

SYNOPSIS

janitor [COMMAND] [JOB-ID] [RTE]...  

DESCRIPTION

A core problem for grid computing is to provide a large set of libraries across all contributing sites. In order to do so, an automation of the software installation, referred to as dynamic Runtime Environments, is a suitable solution to get the computational grid to its full potential. Janitor is a tool providing a dynamical installation, deinstallation and maintenance of supporting libraries for jobs running in the grid.  

COMMANDS

register
Registers a job and a set of runtime environments in the Janitor database. Requires [JOB-ID] and a list of [RTE]s
deploy
Downloads and installs the desired runtime environments. Requires an already registered [JOB-ID].
remove
Removes the placeholder of the job on the runtime environments. If no more jobs are using the runtime environment and the lifespan of the runtime environment has be expired, the runtime environment can be removed using the sweep command. Requires an existing [JOB-ID] to be removed.
sweep
Removes unused runtime environments. No further arguements are required. Using the additional option --force enforces the removal of all unused runtime environments and expired jobs. Runtime environments having the state FAILED will not be removed.
setstate
Changes the state of a dynamically installed runtime environment. This might be useful in case a runtime environment with a state FAILED shall be removed (new state might be REMOVAL_PENDING). Requires a [STATE] followd by a list of [RTE]s.
search
Performs a simple search in the catalog and the manually installed runtime environments (see runtimedir of the arc configuration file). Requires a list of string to be searched for (no [JOB-ID] nor [RTE]s).
list
Lists all information about jobs, automatically installed runtime environments and manually installed runtime environments. No additional parameters have to be passed. The command may be followed by modifiers:

shortlist for printing short machine-readable output.

jobs only jobs are printed

local local manually installed runtime environments are listed

installed shows information about automatically installed runtime environments

installable shows information about automatically installable runtime environments

dynamic same as installed and installable

rtes information about all kinds of runtime environments is printed

all prints information about all components

info
Renders information about a job. Requires the parameter [JOB-ID].

[JOB-ID]
A unique sequence of digits. Once Janitor registered a job id, it cannot register a second job having the same job id.
[RTE]
Runtime environments are defined by a continuous string. The name of valid runtime environment names can be investigated using the list or the search commands. They are defined in the catalog or by the directories and scripts of the runtimedir of the exttt{grid-manager}.
