ClusterControl 2.0 – Monitor Bioinformatics Applications on Linux Cluster Systems

ClusterControl 2.0

:: DESCRIPTION

ClusterControl is a web-interface to simplify distributing and monitoring bioinformatics applications on Linux cluster systems. This software is based on a modular concept that enables integration of command-line oriented programs into the application framework of ClusterControl. The system enables integration of different applications accessed through one interface and executed on a distributed cluster system. The use of wide spread and freely available technologies like Apache as web-server, PHP as server-side scripting-language and OpenPBS or Sun Grid Engine (SGE) as queuing system enables straightforward installation on common operating systems.
