The Grid Engine Management Module (GEMM) for the Sun™ Control Station allows you to install and set up a grid. It also allows you to monitor the performance of the hosts in the grid. This document explains the features and services available through the Grid Engine control module.
GEMM supports the following operating systems and hardware platforms:
Solaris 9 and 10 on SPARC, x86, and x64 hardware platforms
RedHatLinux 7.3, RedHatLinux 8.0, RedHatLinux 9 on x86 hardware platforms
FedoraLinux 1, FedoraLinux 2, FedoraLinux 3 on x86, and x64 hardware platforms
RedHatLinux 2.1 WS,RedHatLinux 2.1 AS, RedHatLinux 2.1 ES on x86 hardware platforms
RedHatLinux 3WS, RedHatLinux 3 AS, RedHatLinux 3ES on x86, and x64 hardware platforms
SuSELinux 9.0 on x86 and x64 hardware platforms
JDS 1, JDS 2 on x86 hardware
The GEMM module allows you to:
manage different versions of N1 Grid Engine
install a master host on the grid
install additional compute hosts on the grid
monitor and diagnose the performance of the grid
uninstall the Grid Engine components from selected compute and access hosts
uninstall the Grid Engine components from the master host and all compute and access hosts
check the status of Grid Engine (from Station Settings > Active Monitor on the SCS.)
configure the monitoring settings for the grid
The following sections describe each of these functions.
In Grid Engine terminology, compute hosts are called execution hosts. Access hosts are called submit hosts.
