Open Science Grid releases Bosco 1.2, based on HTCondor
June 6, 2013
Bosco is a client for Linux and Mac operating systems for submitting jobs to remote batch systems without administrator assistance. It is designed for end-users, and only requires ssh access to one or more cluster front-ends. Target clusters can be HTCondor, LSF, PBS, SGE or SLURM managed resources. The new Bosco 1.2 release is much easier to install, will handle more jobs, will send clearer error messages, and makes it easier to specify the memory you need inside the clusters you connect to.
