IAS Seminar: DRMAA - A Standardized Interface to Resource Management Systems

The ’Distributed Resource Management Application API (DRMAA)’ working group of the Open Grid Forum (OGF) standardization organization develops and maintains a set of API specifications for tightly coupled and portable programmatic access to cluster systems. This talk will present how DRMAA facilitates the development of portable application programs and high-level libraries such as OGSA-BES, which is one of the key standardized interfaces in middleware for the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) US e-Science infrastructure.

Resource Management System (RMS) (aka batch systems) vendors can provide a standardized access to their product through a DRMAA implementation. High-level API designers, meta-scheduler architects and end users can rely on such DRMAA implementations for a unified access to RMS systems in order to avoid numerous vendor-specific adapters. The scope of the talk is around job submission, job control, reservation management, and retrieval of job and machine monitoring information.
