RHEL MRG alternatives for CentOS

Good Afternoon everyone,

I'm working on a project to develop a "small" HPC cluster. I know Red Hat has released MRG which is based on condor, and I know conodor is freely available. My understanding is that MRG has web interaction capability (correct me if I'm wrong), which is ideal for my situation. While I can handle submitting jobs, managing condor, etc via the command line I would ideally like an interface for 'non-geeky' users to be able to submit, track, and manage their jobs.

Ideally I would like to test all of this without having to purchase hundreds of dollars worth of software for a project that could very well be thrown the eternal round filing cabinet (trash can).

Does anyone know if the CentOS community has received MRG for public distribution? Is there other software alternatives I should be looking at?

Any help or guidance is greatly appreciated.

Hi Vince, I also am following this post. I know very little about HPC and MRG,
so I can't help you, but I am interested to know how you go about building this
cluster and any advice you have.

If you're looking to build an HPC using Condor. I recommend rocksclusters. It's based on the CentOS kernel. It's free from UC San Diego. Good luck!
