Job Spooler (JOB_SPOOLER)
A GENOA client may send remote analysis jobs to a central GENOA job server. Using a spooling architecture for job queues, this may provide efficient
parallel job performances and management of hardware resources. The jobs are
processed as a whole and are not broken up into partial jobs like MPI and other
parallel job methods. Therefore the job spooler works on a global macro level
where it sends an executable job to be performed completely on a specific
Remote job runs without consuming local client resources.
Handle large number of jobs (100+).
Virtual Job Server capability allows job distribution to multiple
Job Spooler servers.
May use secured username & password logins.
Ideal management of analysis resources.
Parallel jobs to maximize high performance workstations for users
and for modules that need parallel jobs to run (A&B Allowables, Parametric
Carpet Plots, Probabilistic runs, etc).
Simplify licensing by installing license on one server with
multiple processors where multiple clients can submit jobs for analysis.
Maximum license limit will queue future jobs until they are ready.
