Application-aware job submission and management portal

By: Pbs Works  09-12-2011

PBS Catalyst is designed to meet the critical need for a simplified management and end-user productivity. PBS Catalyst simplifies the management of distributed, often complex server and application configurations.

Using a simple desktop browser interface, administrators can install and configure one or multiple PBS complexes. Policies can be created, modified and applied to one or several compute complexes. Many administrative tasks – for one or multiple PBS complexes – can be performed from a single management console.

Sites using PBS Catalyst can create application specific ‘portals’ that maximize end-user productivity while ensuring resources are used efficiently.

  • PBS Catalyst provides a simple but powerful 'drag and drop' user interface for submitting, monitoring and managing workloads connected to PBS Professional compute nodes.
  • End user productivity improves since there are no complicated commands to learn. With minimal configuration, PBS Catalyst automates the job submission process, allowing users to spend more time creating better models and simulations.
  • PBS Catalyst understands your applications and how they work. It automatically fills in key input parameters, like the number of processors and amount of memory required.
  • PBS Catalyst stages input data sets and automatically returns output files when your job completes. You no longer need to write, modify or maintain dozens of scripts for your applications and the platforms you use. PBS Catalyst handles the details for you.

Once you have rapidly configured PBS Catalyst for your workloads, whether engineering applications like RADIOSS, or your own applications, PBS Catalyst makes submitting and monitoring jobs to PBS Professional execution queues simple and error free.
