ClusterControl project 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.

Installation:

For local installation, ClusterControl requires a running installation of the web server Apache (http://www.apache.org) with PHP(Version 4) and LDAP support, that comes with nearly every Linux distribution, and a local installation of the queuing system Open Portable Batch System (PBS) which can be downloaded from http://www.openpbs.org or Sun Grid Engine (SGE) which is available at http://gridengine.sunsource.net.

If an LDAP-Server is already available for user-management of the cluster it can be easily integrated by modifying the configuration file. To activate the monitoring mechanism of ClusterControl a status collecting server-process must be started on every cluster node. With the adaptation of one well documented configuration file the installation process is completed.
