Altair announced availability of a connector that more deeply integrates its leading workload management product, PBS Professional, with the HP Insight Cluster Management Utility (CMU) for cluster lifecycle management.
Altair has accomplished this integration using a "connector" that furnishes seamless integration and provides the administrator an interface to automate 80% or more of the administrator's tasks, the company says. The CMU PBS Professional Connector simplifies cluster deployment and automates the most common tasks for managing a PBS Professional cluster via CMU.
The HP Insight CMU is a hyperscale framework for cluster lifecycle management and offers a suite of tools for large Linux clusters such as those found in high performance computing (HPC) environments. A simple graphical user interface (GUI) enables an "at-a-glance" view of the entire cluster across multiple metrics, provides frictionless scalable remote management and analysis, and allows rapid provisioning of software to all the nodes of the system.
Using the HP Insight CMU with the CMU PBS Professional Connector simplifies management of clusters by automating numerous manual tasks and providing easier access to important utilization and performance metrics, as well as improved access to job data, the company says. The CMU PBS Professional Connector optimizes job placement via automatic topology configuration and provides one-click access to support resources, such as PBS Professional user forums and documentation.
