Condor Wiki

The W&L Condor Project Wiki (where this page is located) is at: http://servo.cs.wlu.edu/dokuwiki/doku.php/condor/
Right now, the Wiki serves as documentation for installing Condor and configuring machines to join the Condor pool. In the future, this will be the place to go for users to learn how to submit jobs to our Condor system.

  • Farther Future
    • Configure Condor's Computing on Demand feature so that MATLAB processes will run on Condor
