Sun Grid Engine - Advanced Administration

( Duration: 4 Days )

The Sun Grid Engine Advanced Administration training course provides the necessary skills to install, configure, use, and troubleshoot N1 Grid Engine (N1GE). This course describes installation and advanced administration of this product. You will learn to use the command-line interface to submit interactive and batch jobs to the grid. In addition, you will perform basic configuration tasks, such as displaying, adding, modifying, and deleting queue, host, and global configurations and complexes. The course also describes resource management and approaches for troubleshooting failures in the grid. Finally, you will learn about the special scheduling features available in N1GE including the share tree, functional, deadline, and overrides scheduling policies.

By attending Sun Grid Engine Advanced Administration workshop, delegates will learn to:

  • Perform installation tasks and run basic user commands, including: describing the features and architecture of the N1GE software; describing distributed resource management (DRM); performing a Network File System (NFS) installation of N1GE; and submitting batch and interactive jobs to the grid
  • Configure N1GE, including performing basic queue, host, and cluster configuration; administering complexes; and integrating applications in the grid
  • Perform advanced tasks, including administering and troubleshooting N1GE and configuring scheduling policies

Should be able to perform routine system administration tasks on the Solaris(TM) Operating System (Solaris OS).

This Sun Grid Engine Advanced Administration class is ideal for those IT Professionals who are responsible for installing, configuring, using, and troubleshooting N1GE.
