Job processing

The CLC Server can be run as a single server, where administration and job execution are run on the same system, or it can be run as a master with execution nodes, where administration is done on the master server, and jobs are processed on execution nodes. These can be either nodes dedicated to running CLC software (job nodes) or nodes in an existing compute cluster, making use of a third party scheduler (grid nodes).

This chapter describes the available server setups, options relating to configuring execution nodes and options affecting how parts of workflows are distributed across nodes, where relevant.
