Tethys Compute Admin Pages

The Tethys Compute settings in site admin allows an administrator to manage computing clusters, oversee jobs, configure schedulers, and configure settings for computing resources.


Figure 1. Dashboard for Tethys Compute admin pages.


Jobs represent some sort of computation that is sent from an app to a cluster using the Job Manager. For each job that is created a database record is made to store some of the basic information about the job including: name, user, creation time, and status. The Jobs section in the Tethys Compute admin page allows for basic management of these database records. Jobs cannot be created in the admin pages, but they can be edited.


Schedulers are HTCondor nodes that have scheduling rights in the pool they belong to. Schedulers are needed for CondorJob types (see Job Manager documentation). When creating a new Scheduler there are two required settings: Name and Host ; an optional setting: Username ; and then two options for specifying authentication credentials: Password or Private key path and Private key pass.

The shortcut for the home directory: '~/' can be used and will be evaluated to the home directory of the Apache user.
