OOD server offload

My colleague attended the OOD BoF at SC19 where it was mentioned that you have ready a beta of OOD job offload to a standalone Linux server. We would like to try this on our systems. Would you be able to get us set up with that?



We’re calling the new feature the LinuxHost adapter. We just got a final thumbs up from our head system’s architect today. Docs are in-progress (Github), and we’ll have an RPM available tomorrow.

ps. I just noticed that Github’s RST compiler doesn’t render our code sections properly; the raw file is viewable here: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/OSC/ood-documentation/linuxhostadapter/source/installation/resource-manager/linuxhost.rst

See https://osc.github.io/ood-documentation-test/linuxhostadapter/installation/resource-manager/linuxhost.html for a test build of the documentation in progress.


The OnDemand latest repo now has a 1.7.4 build which is the first build where the new adapter is available. You can try the latest by using https://yum.osc.edu/ondemand/latest/ondemand-release-web-latest-1-6.noarch.rpm. 1.7.4 has not been tested in prod at OSC, and so we are not yet recommending it for production elsewhere, but if you want to try it out you are welcome. Please, let us know how it goes.
