Batchmake support for grid computing.

Condor

The main support for grid computing is done through Condor.

Transferring data and executable to nodes

By default BatchMake/Condor transfers the input files as well as the executables to each node, it also transfer the output of each executable back to the main submitting node.

BatchMake provides a way to configure which files are transfered to nodes using the GridTransferFile(ALL|EXECUTABLE|INPUT_FILES|OUTPUT_FILES|NONE) function.

For instance to disable any file transfer (including the executable) put this line at the top of your BatchMake script.

 GridTransferFile(NONE)

Directories on each node can also be configured using the following functions:

 DataDirectory('/data')
 OutputDirectory('/tmp')
 GridExecutableDirectory('/apps')
