Setting up the grid integration

The steps for configuring grid integration for a CLC Server are listed below, with a link to the manual section covering that topic in detail. These tasks primarily involve setting up licensing for CLC Grid Workers (aka "grid workers"), which are stand-alone executables used to run CLC jobs on grid nodes, and configuring grid presets, each of which includes the location of a CLC Grid Worker.

The steps below assume that the CLC Server software is already installed on the machine that is to act as the master, the license for the master has been downloaded Downloading a License, and the CLC Server has been restarted.

Steps to setup grid integration:

  1. Configure the CLC Server master node: Configuring the master node for a grid setup.
  2. Set up grid worker licensing: Setting up grid worker licensing.
  3. Configure the CLC grid licenses as a consumable resource in the local grid system: Configure grid worker licenses as a consumable resource.
  4. Configure and save grid presets: Configuring grid presets.
  5. (Optional) Create and configure a clcgridworker.vmoptions file in each deployed CLC Grid Worker area: Configure other grid worker options.
  6. Test your setup by submitting some small tasks to the grid via a CLC Server client, such as a CLC Genomics Workbench or the CLC Server Command Line Tools.
