SGE Transfer Queue to Globus and GridWay

This component is twofold. One set of scripts enables SGE to submit jobs to a WS-GRAM service, as that provided by Globus Toolkit 4.0. Implicitly this enables to send a job to any underlying LRMS, including an encapsulated GridWay (GridGateWay). The other set offers similar functionality but for GridWay. The basics behind these components can be summarize in the creation of a new queue in SGE. This queue will have scripts attached to each possible operation: starter, suspend, resume, terminate. In turn, these scripts interact with either Globus or GridWay, ensuring that the job is correctly executed in them.   This figure shows SGE with one transfer queue configured. In the SGE domain we find the normal SGE local queues and a special Grid queue (that can be configured to be available only under certain special conditions), that enables SGE to submit jobs to a WS-GRAM service or to GridWay. This WS-GRAM service can, in turn, virtualize a cluster (with several known LRMS) or it can encapsulate a GridWay (thus conforming a GridGateWay) that gives access to a globus based enterprise or partner infrastructure.
