Re: Face-to-Face Meeting

Hi again, 

it seems that December 10/11 is the preferred option for the F2F, so
we'll go ahead and plan for that date.

So far we have confirmations from five people to attend.  We'd
appreciate if you could all confirm your attendence by end of
November.

The meeting will be hosted by Zuse Institute Berlin (thanks!).
We'll send the exact details around about a week before the meeting.
To help travel planning: ZIB is about an hour away from Tegel
Airport, about two hours from Schoenefeld Airport, and about 30
minutes from Berlin Downtown.  More details, and proposed
accomodations, are on http://www.zib.de/besucher/index.en.html
Please let us know if you want us to help organize accomocations.

To re-iterate: this will mostly be a DRMAA meeting, dedicated to
make progress on the open DRMAA.v2 issues, but we will use part of
that F2F time to sync with the SAGA approaches which seem to have
covered some part of the problem space targeted by DRMAA.v2.

Cheers, see you soon in Berlin, 

  Andre.

Conference call - Nov 11th - CANCELED

Dear all,

since we had not enough progress on the mailing list regarding the current 
topics (MonitoringSession interface, JobInfo interface), I cancel today's phone 
call. Please use the time for some offline work:

Re: Call for participation: DRMAA2 machine monitoring

Thanks for your comment, Mariusz. The LSF page ypu provided promises even more 
information from the LSF DRMS:

OperatingSystemName
OperatingSystemVersion
CPUArchitectureName
IndividualCPUSpeed
IndividualNetworkBandwidth

This fits seamlessly to our OS / CPU architecture proposal - good. The question 
remains if we want to add network bandwidth, available tmp space and / or the 
number of local disks to the DRMAA model.

Beside the cross-check with other DRM's (PBS, SGE, Globus, ...), my initial list 
of OS identification issues is also still there:

- Do we need to distinguish the different BSD derivations ?
- Do we really need support for Non-NT Windows and OSF/1 ?
- Is SCO OpenServer something different from SCO UnixWare ? Is this a relevant 
separation ?
- Do we need to add mainframe operating systems ?
- Do we need a more fine-grained distinguishing between different Sparc processors ?

Best,
Peter.
