EDGI submits 10,000 jobs to Desktop Grid at EGI User Forum

At the EGI User Forum, held in Vilnius, Lithuania, the EDGI project for the first time demonstrated a brand new feature. The feature is called the MetaJob mechanism by which users are enabled to submit jobs to the EDGI Desktop Grid through gLite using command-line tools in the range of thousands jobs, tens of thousands jobs or even more. This was being demonstrated in the EDGI booth with great success. During the day 10,000 jobs were submitted several times to show the EGI User Forum visitors, how the jobs can easily be processed by BOINC and to show the gLite users, how MetaJob can be used through glite, without disrupting the gLite infrastructure.
